    Getting from Point A to Point B
    By - Michelle Miller - Finance Director
    Don't you love to see photos of the leafy green vegetables from the greenhouses in Mombasa? How about all of those papaya hanging from the trees? We are thrilled with the harvests and what they mean for our families.  However, it feels like we're spinning our wheels by renting a truck for a few months at a time. ...

    A Photo is Worth 1,000 Words
    By - Michelle Miller - Finance Director
    What is it they say about a photo being worth 1,000 words?  I'm hoping that is the case today as I report to you about our need for a truck. As you can see, our greenhouse project in Mombasa is flourishing!  Look at all those delicious vegetables! Now imagine using a motorcycle or rental truck to get the...

    Not Quite There, but Trying!
    By - Tanya Weaver - Executive Director
