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

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing nutrition to children and youth. This reporting period we focus our help to individual families who are in dire situation. For example, we supported a young mother and her child with nutritious food for 3 months in order for them to grow healthy and the child to grow free from sickness and diseases. The first year of a child is critical and the need for proper nutrition is imperative. We trained also the young father to grow food around the area so that they have access year round to organically grown vegetables. We are able to provide support to 7 families during this period using this strategy.

Hoping for your continuing support.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing children and youth in impoverished families here with improvement to their health and nutrition. In the past activities we provided them with food assistance and we continue these type of initiative at present. In so doing we provided for them directly with food or other items that they can already use. In the future we aim to provide them with long-term support like letting them engage in gardening and other livelihood and income generating projects. For the direct assistance we are able to provide 120 children and youth with food and toys especially mind-games.

Hoping for your continuing support to this initiative.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed

Dear Friend,

Warmest greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing assistance in terms of health and nutrition to children and youth. Thanks very much to local donors too who have provided us with the means to feed on a regular basis local children coming from very poor families in 2 villages here. Most of the parents of the children are daily wage earners and small-scale farmers and food for them is always scarce. The need to provide them with nutritious food in order to improve their health and to improve their intellectual capacities is imperative so that they have good chances in life. This reporting period, we are able to provide food to 75 children and we feed them three times a week during lunchtime. Hoping for your continued support to our project.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing nutrition and health support for severely disadvantaged youth here. This project is indeed very important since young children who are malnourished have very little chance of growing up as productive adults and their physical condition as well as their mental agility is compromised. Our approach is to provide them with immediate food supply during the initial phase of this project. This reporting period, we progress to providing the families especially the mothers with starter kits so that they are able to cultivate their own gardens. The starter kits comprise vegetable seeds, small garden tools, organic fertilizer and basic illustrated reading materials showing how a small garden is made and managed. We also included in the reading kit simple vegetable-based menu that the family can easily do. We were able to engage a total of 325 families in this manner.

Hoping for your continuing support to our project.

Very sincerely yours,

Jed Christian Sayre
