Challenge

In the rural areas where we work the elderly population is revered though sadly there often isn't enough food or money for medicine for them. The families now have to decide where their few dollars can be spent and medicines for the elderly are often out of reach. When we can, we provide hearty meals for them though we want to do more.

Solution

Sustainable family income is key for all the family from the youngest to the oldest which is why this is an area we are concentrating on over the next few years. By implementing school and community vegetable gardens we can share the harvest with them. More importantly by educating the young they can then help the old. Whatever aid we can provide it must be sustainable for years to come and this is what we intend to do with donations.

Long-Term Impact

The potential impact on the communities is palpable. By increasing sustainable income the health of the community is improved, especially with the elderly. By increasing food production there is more to go around each day and we will continue to celebrate with them with a hearty meal!
