Supporting parents with livelihood

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative giving education to disadvantaged youth. With the Coronavirus pandemic, educating the youth especially those belonging to very poor families becomes doubly difficult with them unable to adopt to the approach of blended learning and the use of internet and computers. These devices, we most often take for granted is difficult to access by the rural poor. We try to assist the youth by continue providing alternative livelihood to their parents and focusing on improving farming activities. In so doing, even if they are unable to purchase laptops, they are able to generate income and use the money in order to pay for internet time in cafes. In this manner we are able to provide support to 310 families and try to improve their livelihoods. Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing water to remote villages. Water is becoming scarce here and sources are in distant mountains and the most burdened are women and children who are relegated the task of fetching water often walking long distances. This reporting period, we provided water to a small cluster of 15 families by providing them materials where they are able to draw water from an uphill stream by means of gravity. This technique is fairly simple and entails the use of polyethylene pipes drawing water from a spring or reservoir. The system will last for many years and maintenance is very low. Hoping for your continuing support so that we are able to construct additional water systems like this.

Very sincerely yours,

Launching food in the home initiative

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative mobilizing the youth to implement actions mitigating the negative impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. This reporting period we launched a youth initiative mobilizing and training leaders and volunteers so that they are able to start model vegetable gardens in their backyards as sources of food, income and exerice for the whole family. Exercise and camaraderie is a much-needed ingridient during this time when movement is severely restricted and families are told to stay within the bounds of their homes. Gardening is very effective because we have plenty of sun, rich soil and much rain to naturally water the plants. We are able to engage 720 youth in this manner and we hope to expand to more youth in the next weeks. Hoping for your continuing support and join us in this advocacy.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian Sayre
