This month, Pope Francis invites us to pray for small farmers, “that they may receive a just reward for their precious labour”
. His intention for evangelization is “that Christians in Africa may give witness to love and faith in Jesus Christ amid political-religious conflicts”
The two are closely linked and particularly relevant for young people in Africa. As a result of climate change and land degradation, farming is becoming increasingly challenging, especially for small farmers in Africa, where vulnerable ecosystems become even more fragile. The average age of farmers in Africa is 60, on a continent that has the youngest population in the world. Caring for the land, for creation, therefore means it can continue to sustain us, and contribute to lesser conflicts.
, we rededicate ourselves to this mission, and invite you, in gratitude for your support, to continue journeying with us. A better world is possible!
