A Little Help From Our Friends

Corn waste waiting to be turned into biochar
Corn waste waiting to be turned into biochar
Our project in Mae Chaem is going strong. We are in the process of setting up storge for upcoming biochar. Mae Wak will start making biochar in December. We have trained 141 people to make biochar so far.
The estimated amount of biochar that will be created this year is 50 tons! 
We provided 10 tons of biochar mix to Mae Wak and now results are getting back to us that biochar is working well with their crops (Eggplant, green long bean, basil, pumpkin, cucumber, and flower)
The only way this solution will succeed is if a strong market is established for biochar. Our social enterprise programs are a great start to turning biochar into marketable products that will provide local employment and encourage farmers to make and sell their biochar to the social enterprises.
Meanwhile, in Africa, the Warm Heart Malawi Biochar Project has more than doubled the number of farmers it has reached, has been tasked by Government with an important national training mission, and has established Warm Heart Kenya and its first five training centers. In Ghana, the Rural Renaissance Warm Heart Foundation is analyzing the first data from its test plots and preparing a grant proposal for USAID.
We are working hard to spread the biochar solution not just here at home, but far and wide, as every farmer who converts to making biochar instead of open field burning is a win for the environment and the local communities.
Your support has made this all happen. We are so grateful for your initial contribution to our campaign. We are far from the finish line and are still seeking further funding to reach our goals. Together we can make it happen!
Please continue your support with any amount of donation that you can afford. 
In gratitude,
Evelind and Michael
