We are so excited to report that the work continues in the schools of our fog-fed region. We continue growing plants and we continue monitoring and teaching the eager children. The school gardens have grown and now it is only maintenance we do; in this one school of Ihamchiwen, it is the pupils themselves who now continue to pass on the information to the younger ones. As we organize our by-monthly visit, we were so surprised by the eagerness and the knowledge passed on down to the new class. The peer-teaching is emerging as a very powerful tool and we are so happy to see the flame still alive and well.
We are now investing in our new Id Aachour Agdal Farm. As we lay the foundation for the work, we invite the children to come and see, bear witness to the work so that they understand and experience first hand how transformation of a loved soil happens. As the communities still await the rain even when the signs of a severe draught are high, we have some water collected from our fog CloudFisher to give to the farm and school-gardens. These pupils, like their parents, understand very well the impact of water-scarcity and what watering the land means: hope, sustainability, and survival. And, likewise, for us the messages of hope, sustainability and survival are our primary goals. Thank you all for making this possible.
