Dear Friends, Partners, Supporters,
We hope this finds you well. We are excited that what was once a dream is slowly but surely turning into reality with your support. we have been able to complete the 1st phase of our project and are well on the way to completing the second phase of this great initiative that will help us to improve the nutrition of over 150 Orphans and vulnerable children that we serve and also the income of the staff that work so diligently to ensure that these children fulfil their potential. All this would not be possible without the support that you have given and continue to give. This is what we have been able to achieve thus far,
Phase 1. In this phase we were able to reinforce major weak points around the Acres of Mercy procurements inorder to secure the investments which we are procuring with your generous donations (Please read last months report for more details and pictures)
Phase 2: This phase is almost complete. We have been able to put up the greenhouse and set up the irrigation system , erect 2 metal water tank stands and also acquired 2 tanks that will store up to 6600 litres of water. See down below for what is required to finish the second phase
IMPACT OF PHASE 2 ON THE COMMUNITY SO FAR
We have been able to create temporary employment opportunities for 5 local youth and one lady who takes care of 7 orphans and vulnerable children.
The youth were employed at a rate of $3.60 per day for 5 days.
We have contracted to pay the lady $ 42 a month to manage the routine daily activities required in the greenhouse
One individual has beeen trained in Maximizing Green house Production and is able to train others in the same.
Total Disbursed by March 2011 in US $- 4.085.75
Total Spent as at May 11th 2011- US $- 4,031.41
Balance as at May 11th 2011- US $- 55.34
To help us to achieve our goal of USD 11,000 please consider giving to this project once again. You can even consider giving to us on a monthly recurring basis till this project is fully funded. This would be of great help to us.
