High-valued crops in food security interventions

Dear Friend,

Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing sanitation and food security to poor, marginal farmers in remote villages here. Last reporting period, we were able to provide 30 low-cost durable latrines to beneficiaries belonging to the Subanen tribe. Thanks also to local supporters here who provided us with the needed materials and logistics in our work. We included this time in our initiative the promotion of high-valued crops such as cacao to increase the income base of farmers. The value of cacao in the local market is on the rise with demand very high for chocolates and other related products. We were able to partner with 5 farmers to act as initial model for this activity. Aside from supporting them with seedlings, we will also provide technical assistance especially in field management of the newly planted seedlings.

Again, thank you very much for your support.

Very sincerely yours,

Cesario Sayre

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project to provide life-saving support for poor farmers. We focus our support to assisting farmers meeting an accident while doing farm activities. Farming activities aside from back-breaking is also full of situation for accidents to happen. For example, one farmer here while going to the farm suffered burns from the weeds that he is burning and he needs antibiotics, pain reliever and bandages for his wound. We are able to provide this. We will continue to do so in this manner aside from continually providing life-saving support like the provision of farm tools, seeds, organic fertilizer and deworming medicine for his animals.

Again thank you for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Cesar

Farm-based livelihood initiative

Providing decent light work

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing health and nutrition support for the elderly. The increasing number of old people in our community is a big problem and taking care of them takes much time and money for the carers. Instead of doing productive work, the carers' time is used up and the family becomes poorer and poorer. We have devised a way for elderlies, as long as they are able and healthy, to do paid but light work in the farm. Work comprise of taking care of farm animals, carrying farm inputs and farm harvest and processing of farm products for the market. This reporting period, we are able to assist 25 elder people find work for themselves. Their relatives who are caring for them are happy about this arrangement. The elderlies also like to do something rather than stay stagnant at home. 

Hoping that you will be able to provide additional support for this project.

Very sincerely yours,

Cesar
