An Effective Approach to Breaking the Cycle

Dear Donor,

Thank you for your donations in the past and a particular thank you to those who are doing subscriptions on a monthly basis.

How effective is your donation? Consider that the children supported through New Light were sleeping under the beds of their mothers and are now in a night shelter where rows of matts are lined up with children tucked into bed. Think about the rows of bowls lined up to feed the children and the love and support that they feel.

New Light is a safe and clean oasis where children can feel special. They are educated and when they mature and in danger of being pulled into the sex trade, they go to live in a safe house. The children are educated and encouraged to achieve higher educational goals. There are several in college as well as in trade schools.

We continue to raise money for New Light knowing full well that donations are well used to shore up some of the most vulnerable people on the planet.

 

Thank you,

Shana

Planting Moringa Trees is a Win Win Win

Thank you to all of you who have donated in the past and particularly to those who have a monthly subscription. The monthly funds keep the youth group planting trees and more money goes into their scholarship fund for the youth to attend school. 

Today we are doing a training for a women's group to start their own orchard. Once the trees are mature in less than a year and a half, we will fund an oil press so they can make high quality oil for use and to sell. 

Planting trees, providing scholarship funds and granting women's groups with an income producing project is a win win win.

Thank you!

Celebrating Success with the Moringa Tree Project

Dear Donor,

We are happy to report that our Moringa Tree Project is doing well and the trees that are planted are thriving. In the beginning, we had challenges with downpours washing the seedlings away, animals munching on them, and drought taking its toll on the tender seedlings.

Now that we are beyond that fragile stage, we are encouraged and excited for everyone involved. Our trainer Dickson Omandi loves children and inspires them with his enthusiasm for all aspects of sustainable farming methods. He teaches them about the moringa tree uses, encourages them all to take the trees home for their families and distributes more moringa seeds to plant.

We apprecaite your ongoing support and following our project. Those of you who are contributing each month through a subscription, you are helping immensely as the children are able to continue to plant trees and your generosity supports their school tuition through the moringa scholarship fund.

Thank you!

Shana
