Making Hay while the Sun Shines & Wed. 13 June Bonus Day

Young people at the Children and Youth Empowerment Center are developing enterprises so they'll be able to support themselves as they leave the Center. Some of the most promising activities are cutting and baling hay, and the production of balers. A professor from Penn State University taught them how to cut hay with scythes, which are more efficient than the traditional means of cutting grass.  The four youth involved have cut and baled more than 500 bales since the first of the year. They've also improved and built a wooden baler, which they're now offering for sale.

This Wednesday (13 June) is a Global Giving Bonus Day. Because our project is in the 'Leader' status, every gift will be matched at 40% while funds last! This is a great opportunity to increase the impact of your support so give early on Wednesday and share with your friends!
