Our first harvesting of corn are here.  The children have enjoyed some fresh corn. Please enjoy the pictures of them having a feast over the fresh corn. 

In addition we have harvested 850 Kg of corn.  This represents the orphans annual requirement of corn.  This will be used to cook dinner for the children throughout the year.  More harvesting in the way (peanuts, millet, and beans) and we will keep you informed.  Thank you for your continued support.

As we grow these crop to feed the children, we are also creating jobs in the Samanko 2 community.  This year, we hired the services of over 30 indigenous farmers.
