We would like to thank wholeheartedly everyone for your continuous support for our project, which is to empower women's lives and the education of needy children in Masisi (Democratic Republic of Congo). We are aware that you all have other obligations and yet you constantly support us, so we do appreciate your generosity, your encouragement, and your willingness to devote your time and your thoughts to the women and children that we are supporting.
During the last trimester, we were able:
Harvest the soya bean that was cultivated on the farm during the last cultural season. In total, we harvested 500 kg of soybean in 1 hectare.
Capacity-building sessions for the women in the marketing of agricultural products, post-harvest handling, and how to manage finances as they are approaching their graduation are planned for next month, hence developing and implementing a fund-generating activity of their own. These capacity-building sessions were undertaken virtually.
Send some gifts, clothes, and food (rice, maize flour, salt, sugar, and porridge flour) as we were not able to visit Nyabiondo due to security reasons as we planned. we were able to continue undertaking the project and evaluating the progress of the women and the children in Nyabiondo.
For the coming trimester, our actions aim at providing:
As the first generation of the project is graduating this august, we plan to supply them with a startup capital in-group of 5 women, meaning 5 groups in total.
The soybean will be commercialized by the women after drying up to the required level of moisture for conservation and commercialization.
Prepare to send back to school fees to the children by preparing to help with the tuition, estimated at 75 USD per trimester. Help with the school equipment and classic objects such as notebooks, pens, pencils, slates, books, bags, jackets, uniforms, and school shoes. Send one kid per family to school if possible. This is one of our major goals for the trimester.
Medicinal supplies such as alcohol and cotton to treat wounds, medicines for malaria, diarrhea, typhoid, mosquito nets, face masks, and sanitizers for prevention purposes. Sensing medicinal supplies such as medicine for malaria, typhoid, etc
We thank you for all the kindness that you are showing to the women in Nyabiondo village in Masisi. Words are fleeting, and we want you to know that a simple “thank you” does not do justice to how deeply we appreciate your support.
With each donation we receive, we become all that much closer to our goal. Thank you for making a difference through your compassion and generosity.
