Dear Friends,

As a community, we express our sincere gratitude for your assistance towards alleviating the socio-economic challenges that we face.

We indeed appreciate your support for our cassava project. The crop has proven to be an answer to the problem of food insecurity in the area.

Cassava has been adopted fully by the locals as an alternative crop for human and livestock consumption. Presently, over 7,500 families are cultivating and utilizing the crop. All these have received cassava planting materials through the project. The mill, which you helped us acquire, is effectively grinding the cassava into flour. The mill was purchased and installed at  7,400 US dollars, from your generous contributions. It now operates sustainably as a social enterprise!

As listed on our GlobalGiving page, the other challenge bedevilling us is water scarcity. We are already making strides towards providing a source of clean water for our people by 2016. We plan to drill borehole water for domestic and irrigation uses. This is after a hydrological survey that was conducted confirmed the viability of tapping underground water in the area. The project is now duly registered with the relevant state agencies.  The locals have already started making contributions towards the project. We will also be seeking support from various donors. 

Thank you again for your continued support!

With gratitude,
