Work that Matters
We work with a number of farming organizations in the United States to provide farming equipment, training, and knowledge who travel to these distressed areas and teach children and teens the vocation of being a farmer. The exciting part is when they are done with the process; we work with another foundation that will provide them with a plot of land that will actually help them start off as a farmer.
Creating a Future
Pilgrim Consulting partners with a number of organizations that focus on impacting the needs of distressed children and changing lives, not just by sustenance of food, but also by giving distressed children a future and independence by the building of schools for education and vocational training.
