The UNT Future Without Chapter has been involved in many sustainability projects for combating poverty throughout the years. Below are some examples of our past projects.

The Merida Project

Square urban garden

Last year, UNT Future Without Poverty raised over $1,000 to provide urban gardening education to families in the village of Cholul, located in Yucatan, Mexico. The funds covered comprehensive urban gardening education, as well as supplies and assistance for the village in setting up gardens of their own.; This project appealed to all 4 of our E’s: Education, Empowerment, Enterprise, and Environment. We helped educate the families on urban gardening techniques. This empowered them to grow their own fruits and vegetables, and allowed for enterprise if they choose to sell what they grow. Finally, this project helped benefit the environment through sustainable growing methods.
