News from the field

Meeting of women
Meeting of women's and farmer group leaders

Our latest newsletter from SEPALI Madagascar reports in on its August activities.  SEPALI is scaling-up its farmers program and has recently established 4 womens' groups.  All farmers are working hard to meet a 15 October deadline and earn a new tee-shirt plus SEPALI Madagascar registration card.  The attached newsletter is dedicated to them.

Additional news:  Thanks to our generous donors, we are now able to open offices in two of the communities where  SEPALI Madagascar is working.  The offices (one-room building) serve as a meeting place when the team is present as well as a place for the team to sleep thus enabling them to spend longer in the communities on their visits. In the attached photo, you can see members of the village of Ambodivoagny lining up to read the SEPALI poster.

Best wishes and thank you for your support and interest in our project!
