Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project feed starving children. We are happy to inform you that despite the problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic as well as by changing climatic conditions making farming a challenge as crop yields becomes small and unable to feed families, we are able to continue implementing the project with your support and that of countless others. This reporting period we are able to implement a local training program designed to increase the livelihood and incomes of the participants. We target mothers of children because they are instruments in taking care of their children. We provide them life-skills like the implementation of small livelihoods such as vegetable gardening and the raising of small animals like goats and chickens. We are able to train a total of 135 mothers and provide them with small livelihood packets during this reporting period. We hope for your continuing support for this important initiative. Thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian Sayre

Launching youth training

Dear Friend, Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative promoting permaculture to the youth. Permaculture is the most practical approach in order to improve the environment and the lives of young farmers. The practice of mono-crop agriculture is no longer viable and would only lead to losses in the farm and poverty especially for small farmers. This reporting period we are happy to inform you that we are able to tap additional local resources and launch a movement for the youth in 3 municipalities. Our approach is to conduct physical training but following social distancing rules because of the coronavirus pandemic and then to do on-line teaching using social media and popular on-line tools. We are able to start the training with 60 youth and we will be expanding as we go on in the implementation process. We are prioritizing most promising crops such as cacao as the main crop in our permaculture mix. Hoping for your continuing support. Thank you so much.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian

Scaling-up food supply

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative youth-led coronavirus response. We are very happy to report that during this project period, we are able to scale-up our response to the youth via support from other sources aimed at improving local food supply. The initiative is on small-scale food production via vegetable gardening and the raising of small animals for food and the market. We coined this style of agriculture "permaculture" or the mixed raising of food in the farm using low-energy systems. For example using gravity water instead of pumps, etc. Hoping that we will be successful in this venture so that we will be able to expand this initiative to other areas. So far we have included 60 youths in 3 batches of capacity-building and provision of farming inputs and we hope to include more. Hoping for your continuing support. Thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Cora Sayre
