3rd report- update

Group's office bearers

Murang'a County, Kenya

Dear Donors,

I just wanted to update you that many groups have been visiting us for training on cassava cultivation. We are very happy that we are able to spread the word and help others grow this drought resistant crop that can prevent famine. I wish to present a photo of our group's officials that was taken during such a training session last week.

In the photo are the group's office bearers, from left:

Michael Murigi    -  Patron

Jane Wainaina      - Chairperson

Lydiah Ndegwa   - Secretary

Julius Kamande    - Vice-Chairperson

Alice  Njoki         -  Vice Secretary

Racheal Wanjiku   -  Treasurer

Also captured in the photo, are cassava made food products. That is cassava porridge in the container, cassava doughnuts, chips, crisps, chapattis and ugali in the flasks. In the background, is a cassava crop growing in a garden.

Thank you very much for your continued support,
