Tonight like the last three nights, I am waiting for our field staff that have reported: The country has shot down. Thousands are walking, singing their complaints with drums and foot steps drumming their pain. Nothing unexpected: Not enough employments, kids who did not get to school this September, not knowing when is the next meal coming from and the increasing cost of livng that renders the acqisition of basic necessities impossible.
Amid these challenges there is a group of people in communities much like yours who tneders to their work early before sunrise and often amid the hot sun, cultivating, caring for the soil and praying for better conditions and improved production.
They are the many farmer organizations and their members with whom we partner. As we close 2018, we open 2019 with a a number of project that will boost food production and we hope that you will keep the rural farmers on your priority list. The project portfolio is set in the mist of our sustainable development goals and priorities. It comprises the following; Sustainable Agriculture (SD), Alternative Economy (AE), Environment (E)

Reforestation is a required component for all projects. Each organization will plant 20,000 trees except for OPJDSC that will add 60,000 new mango trees to complete the goal of 120,000. T he replacement of coffee and cacao will improve the quality and quantity of coffee produced plant 120,000 and the mango production of 60,000; and KOKAP that will also renew its coffee field planting 60,000 new coffee trees, to reach a total of 300,000 new seedlings for 2019.
Thank you for supporting food production in all its aspects.
