Posho Mill update

Accounting lessons
Accounting lessons

The posho mill (used to grind Maize into flour), funded by this project, has now been operating on a daily basis since May 2011. GVI volunteers and staff have been teaching the The Mahandikini Network for Animal Rights how to keep and analyse operational and financial records. This is to insure the group maximise their profits and maintain good accounting standards and transparency in their books.

Lately the Mahandikini group have been focusing on building up a larger client base. At the moment their profit margin is high but the number of customers is low. This is in part, due to the current high cost of Maize in the area. They have started to advertise the Mill and Grainstore by placing signage on the road from Taveta to Nairobi which passes the Mill and also using the members to spread the word through local churches and other community groups.

GVI Seychelles leading by example

At the November 2011 climate change conference in Durban, South Africa, climate science experts announced that their latest findings confirm that the planet is on course for catastrophic climate change due to green house gas emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. Mankind’s response to the problem we have created has been too little too late to avert a 2 degree C + rise in average global temperatures over the next 50-100 years. Extreme weather events such as droughts, floods, deep freezes and hurricanes will increase dramatically. The nations least able to cope will be the hardest hit.

Small island states such as the Seychelles islands are in the direct line of fire. Their wonderfully diverse and fragile ecosystems are in danger of being destroyed forever in the near future. GVI Curieuse is raising money for the installation of a Solar system to help the base become an example of zero emissions living. As an international company working in over thirty countries reducing our carbon footprint is a priority. Leading by example not only educates our volunteers and the local population but demonstrates that renewable energy technologies, once installed are a cheap, clean and efficient way to produce the energy we need not only to exist in a modern world but also to develop for the future.

Amazing support for the GVI Charitable Trust

We would like to share the most recent trustee report from the GVI Charitable Trust. This report covers the six month period from July to December 2011.

We are delighted to share that this has been by far our most successful period, raising in six months nearly as much as we did the whole of the previous year. This increase in funding has brought a corresponding increase in the impact we have been able to create on our programs around the world.

During this period we have invested in sustainable education across Latin America including support for the elderly in Guatemala and income generation schemes to support education in Honduras and Ecuador. In Mexico we have worked with a community to establish a recycling centre and in Kenya our partners in Mombasa will now realise their goal of seeing impoverished students through to completion of the primary education earning recognised qualifications for the first time. 

These are just a few highlights of an amazing, productive and rewarding six months. Thank you to everyone who has supported us and played a crucial role in these achievements.
