Taking Yet another Chance

 The green house project as at October had made the following good progress; Over 150 kgs of tomato fruit and good sales having managed to sell $103 since the first harvest on September 14th. 

The progress was quickly halted by the town council pumping water intermittently for two weeks and shutting down our supply. The crops dried up in Mid November(pics)

We sunk our well deeper  48ft-71 ft. in an effort to get a more permanent source of water and to stop solely relying on the council water and rains.

This season we will take yet another chance to replant but with different crops.

We have purchased coriander seeds to plant in between the tomatoes.

This would increase our income as at the second month of planting instead of waiting till the fourth month.

We are also working to purchase rabbits to loan to students who can take care of them for two months before we sell them for food.

We thank your continued support to keep the children in school. 

To all our friends with recurring donations; THANK YOU. Your unwavering support keeps hope alive here in Nguluni.
