Dear Friend,

Warmest greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative feeding starving girls. We are happy to inform you that despite difficulties caused by severe climate changes and the poor productivity of small farms, we are able to support local villages improve food supply and provide nutrtition to poor women and girls. This reporting period, we are piloting a small plot gardening model that local families can easily implement in their homes. This is designed to improve their sources of food and nutrition as buying vegetables in the market is prohibitive. This approach is the easiest way wherein we are able to improve the health and well-being of poor families. Our pilot garden model is implemented in one village with the aim of increasing this to 3-4 villages in the coming months and as we see results and calibrate for problems and issues arising from our implementation. Hoping for your continuing support and encouragement. Thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project feeding starving girls. The problem with girls living in remote villages is that they are often left-out in the distribution of scarce food and other resources in their families. During this reporting period, rather than providing directly food aid, we decided to provide small livelihoods to girls and their families. The livelihood of choice is the raising of small animals like chickens for this is easy to do and they are free-ranging and do not require much care. We were able to distribute 300 chicks to 30 girls in this manner, thanks also to our local supporters who provided us with assistance. Hoping for your continuing support as we implement this important initiative.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances Uy

Dear Friends,

Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative feeding starving girls. We are approaching this project in a creative way and that is by the provision of tools and materials for the girls and their parents to sustain their livelihoods and in so doing feed themselves not only once but on a long-term basis. This is very important compared to one-shot provision of food supply that is gone immediately. One of the ways we are doing this is by the promotion of vegetable gardening which is easy to do by the women and which is able to provide them with immediate benefit as some of the vegetables can be harvested in less than a month. This is true for the leafy ones. Our area is blessed with good soil, water and sun which are essentials for gardening to prosper. We are able to assist 125 gardeners during this reporting period. Hoping for your continuing generosity and help. Thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances
