Animal-based livelihood

Growing piglets

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support providing education to poor children. Children who are able to finish their schooling have a clear advantage and a ticket to a good life. Our approach in helping them this time is to provide them and their families with livelihood support which are easy to do and gives them high return in the short term. One of these is the raising of native pigs grown organically which fetch high income and is sought after by health conscious people. We train the recipients how to grow the pigs by feeding them excess crops from the farm and edible grasses like fern and taro. Leaves of sweet potato and cassava are a delicacy too for the pigs. This reporting period we are able to disperse 15 piglets to 15 families.

Very sincerely yours,

Provision of water pump

Dear Friend,

Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing water supply for children and their families. Water is becoming a scarce commodity and our expertise is in constructing large rainwater harvesters as well as gravity-fed water using polyethylene pipes. We also install water pumps in areas where the water table is high and digging a water well is feasible. This reporting period we are able to provide 3 families with simple and cheap pitcher pumps and they provided their own labor in digging the well. This is a cheap solution and very easy to do and hope that you will provide additional support to us. We aim to provide 50 water pumps until the end of this year.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian

Promoting food security

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing nutritious food to children and youth. We aim to provide children and youth with good chances in life when they are adults and food and nutrition is a sure way to do this. Our approach especially in remote areas is to teach them to grow different type of crops on a single piece of land and in so doing their food supply is also varied and there is no need to depend on one or 2 kind of food. When one crop fail, they still have other crops to get their sources of food and nutrition. This reporting period, we are able to teach 20 families how this can be done.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian Sayre
