Our Program, iCAN
WWG2 prides ourselves in helping Veterans create and sustain a healthy lifestyle after returning home from war. Every warrior has a next mission. We know that the transition to civilian life is a journey, and that journey looks different for every Veteran.
iCAN seeks to equip our Veterans with solar installation and energy efficiency retrofitting skills so that they may obtain green job readiness and become self-sufficient community leaders. The goal is to empower our Veterans while addressing the issues of air pollution, energy burden and unemployment that impact our communities.
COVID-19 showed us that we were unprepared to meet our communities’ food needs. Our upcoming project Farming Dreams seeks to address food insecurity through a food sovereignty approach. We are currently designing and building an urban farmhouse with the assistance of MASS Design Group, an architectural firm. We are also working with the founder of Torpedopot, to pilot a containerized self-growing gardening system in our urban farmhouse.
The goal of Farming Dreams is to educate and provide resources to our communities for growing wholesome organic foods that will nourish, sustain and heal our bodies and minds. We are declaring "Food not Famine.”
