Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your support to our project feeding starving children. A series of unfortunate circumstances mainly brought about by climate change has made life difficult for families living in remote communities here. Long dry spell or extreme rainy season makes farming difficult and harvest less, making families hungry on long stretches. This reporting period, we designed a way for the families to be able to feed themselves by helping them engage in local livelihood activities using products readily available in the farm that has little value when sold as raw. For example, root plants like turmeric will sell as little as 20 cents a kilo but when processed the market vaue skyrockets. Water also from harvested coconutscost nothing but when stored and pasteurized can be made into organic vinegar and command high price in the market. This time aroud and with partnership with a local cooperative, we are able to assist 15 women and their families produce turmeric powder, organic vinegar, chili paste, chili powder and taro chips from produce in the farm. We aim to assist additional families like this as we continue to implement this initiative.

Again thank you very much.

Gratefully yours,

Jed
