Industrial Revelation is thrilled to announce that we have successfully met our fundraising goal!

We are so grateful to all of you for your commitment to our work bringing Plumpy'nut to the children of Tanzania. The end of this fundraising campaign marks a crucial step in our progress.

We are proud to announce that the factory building has now been completed and is ready for the installation of machinery. We are one GIANT step closer to achieving our goal.

You can see photos of the factory in our Field Diary http://www.industrialrevelation.org/fieldiary_readmore/diary07_19_10.html

And most importantly-- stay tuned! We are not done yet!

We are still working hard to meet the nutritional needs of the most vulnerable in Tanzania. Check out our new project which provides nutritious meals and access to Plumpy'nut for children in Ward III- the largest children's cancer ward in Tanzania. http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/nutrition-for-children-in-cancer-ward-in-tanzania/

We continue to be committed to the children of this country and we couldn't do it without you so thank you for your support.

A heartfelt thank you from Tanzania,

Habari Zenu! (Greetings!) from Tanzania

Habari Zenu! (Greetings!) from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania where Industrial Revelation's two-woman team is happy to take a few minutes from our busy work to give you an update on the wonderful things we are achieving here. Our dream for Tanzanian children to access quality nutritional foods that can save their lives is on the horizon!

On the factory side, all of the ingredients for Plumpy'nut® have been sourced, and over half of them are from right here in Tanzania. Two men from our Tanzanian factory team are currently in France, being trained in production and engineering so they are ready to work the highly technical machines when they are installed. And the factory building itself is 75% complete.

Don't worry, we have not left our focus on the prevention of malnutrition behind. After a first round of research studies, which Industrial Revelation organized, managed and led on the ground, we now have enough information for the research and development team to create a preventative product, based on Nutributter®, that will be specifically for the Tanzanian need. That product will also be launched later this year.

There is still much work to do. A third staff member from the Tanzanian factory will soon join her colleagues for training in international quality standards. And we still have lots of work ensuring that public and private delivery systems will be well established to get these products to the kids who need them the most.

So we thank you for your continued support as we see this exciting project through.

The energy here is great— we are creating jobs and saving lives! We encourage you to stay up-to-date by checking the staff field diary on our website.

Asanteni sana (Thank you all very much!)

Thank you!

Thank you for your generous contribution to Industrial Revelation Inc. during our Global Giving Challenge. Thanks to all of you we have won the challenge! And most importantly you have helped make it possible for us to continue to fight childhood malnutrition in Tanzania.

There is no time like the holiday season, to more keenly understand the value of the important things in our lives. Since the economic crisis we have had to overcome our share of challenges. The same is true in Tanzania, the result is that hunger has grown; today over one billion people suffer from malnutrition of some form. The need has never been greater.

Fortunately, you and many others like you are taking steps to address this issue. As a non-profit organization producing Plumpy’nut®, Industrial Revelation is proud to be doing its part to end the silent hunger crisis and you should be too. Your donation will go a long way towards not only filling bellies but saving the lives of children suffering from the severest forms of malnutrition. We are pleased that you have chosen to join us.

By targeting the most severe cases of malnutrition, Industrial Revelation helps individuals get through crisis situations- famines caused by droughts, hunger gaps, and political instability. Access to ready-to-use food not only represents a means of survival, but also a lifelong improvement to health. So I thank you for your support.

In the last few months we have accomplished a lot. Two weeks ago we began renovating the future factory site and we received a grant to move forward on a new project to design a daily nutritional packet for sale on the Tanzanian market. Take a look at our updated website for more information- www.industrialrevelation.org.

With the growing support from generous donors like you, Industrial Revelation continues to move closer to saving more lives in Tanzania. I am truly grateful for your support of our mission.

Sincerely,

Navyn Salem President
