Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our project providing happy meals for hungry women and girls. This reporting period we are happy to inform you that we launched a food supply center that will enable us to produce cash crops much-needed by local inhabitants. Seeds and planting materials are always in short supply and also of low quality and our center will focus on producing high-quality seeds and planting materials. This is the first in kind initiative done here and hope that we will be successful. We will piggy-back this initiative with our effort to tap the carbon credit facilities which is given more importance now with climate change issues being increasingly discussed in international conferences. Hoping for your continuing support. Thank you very much.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing happy meals for hungry women and girls. Most of our beneficiaries are farmers and the difficulty of low economic return in farming nowadays due to climate change and severe weather conditions has resulted in malnutrition and hunger among our farmers. The need for supplemental support together with long-term solutions like providing them with sustainable livelihoods is imperative. Thus this reporting period we continue to provide food supply especially rice to our farmers needing the most. We are doing this together with the distribution of farming inputs like vegetable and corn seeds in order to improve farming. We were able to provide for 50 farmers in this manner during this period, thanks so much for your generosity.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances Uy

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing happy meals for hungry women and girls. We are very happy to inform you that during this reporting period and with your generous support as well as with local donors, we are able to build a small multi-purpose center using local materials in 1 pilot village. The multi-purpose center will serve as training and resource center, small library and feeding area for local women and girls. We hope to implement similar approach in 2-3 villages in the coming months as we also see the result of this initiative. We are doing this because we found out that there is no secure place for women and girls to learn and to congregate and this sure is a good venue. Again thank you very much for your generosity.

Very sincerely yours,

Food preparation is important

Dear Friend,

Warm greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative providing Filipino well-loved foods to hungry women and girls. During this reporting period, we focused our effort to the processing of food in order to add value and flavor. There is the situation here where local food is under-valued simply because they are local and so there is a need to improve their acceptability. This phenomena is a by-product of our mentality that local is second class. Towards this end we invited a resource person from a government agency to guide us how to prepare delicious food from local fruits and vegetables. We were able to conduct 1 training attended by 25 trainees and hoping that they will practice what they have learned back home. Again thank you very much for your support.

Very sincerely yours,

Seeking out the most vulnerable
Seeking out the most vulnerable

Dear Friend,

Greetings and thank you very much for your generous support to our initiative supporting women and girls with food and other essentials. This project is important because women and girls in dire circumstances are very vulnerable to exploitation, morbidity and even death. The need to support them is imperative and during this time with the coronavirus pandemic, incomes and the capacities in local communities is very low and there is a need to work harder in order to provide the much-needed support. This reporting period, we are able to select the most depressed village and short-list women and girls whom we will be providing the support. We are able to provide for 35 women and girls with food aid many thanks to your generosity. Again thank you very much and stay healthy and safe always.

Very sincerely yours,

Michelle Frances
