Warm greetings and thank you very much for your continuing support to our initiative feeding starving children. During our intermittent discussions and some meetings with local leaders we found out that children prefer commercial snack foods even if these are not readily available and expensive. We think that advertisements as well as the idea that anything not available in the locality is good contributed to this situation and during this reporting period we aim to change that behavior by the promotion of local food that are more tasty and nutritious than the introduced ones. For example the meat and water of young coconuts hold a lot of promise. Root crops too as staple and as snack food holds a lot of protential too. We will start with 2-3 common crops for promotion and hopefully children will learn to adopt this. We will provide report about this apprach in our next reporting to you. Wish us luck. Thank you so much.
