Promoting gardening as livelihood

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your support to our project providing on-farm livelihoods for girls. Girls in the rural areas sometimes have free time which is not used productively and this often leads to gossiping and gallivanting. We introduced vegetable gardening to them and using their own resources with our inputs comprising already grown vegetable seedlings. We found out that when we provided them with vegetable seeds, the seeds are too tiny and planting them is difficult. There is also technology how to grow seeds with high rate of germintation. We were able to provide seeds comprising ladys fingers, tomato, eggplant, radish, cabbage and bittergourd to 20 participants in this manner. This will be pilot test which we plan to replicate when we are successful.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing latrines to women-led households. Women-led households without access to sanitary latrines is indeed very problematic in terms of modesty and safety of the users. This is very true especially at night when women need to use the latrine and privacy is absent. We proposed this project and we are happy to note that there are generous local givers who have provided support and encouragement. We use the time during this project period in visiting the areas and assessing the need by women-led households in terms of what latrine types to construct, the design and specifications they want and availability of space in their area. We plan also to install 1 or 2 models for them to inspect and comment upon. Hoping that we will continue to generate suppport for this project.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing pre and post natal care for poor women. Women especially those living in remote barrios have no benefit of pre and post natal care and depends on quack doctors and neighbors for treatment when there are things that bothers them. This results to high morbidity and mortality rtes of women. This reporting period, we linked-up with medical service providers based in the town center in order for them to visit women who are to give birth and to those who have given birth already. We re able to serve 12 women who are living near our project area during this time. Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle
