Eggs from Plan Pollo
2015 is the year when we really want to start investing in sustainable income plans which will benefit the families, especially the elderly, for the future. We have already started though there is still a long way to go: by investing in chickens (Plan Pollo) there will be daily eggs in the household and extra income; similarly with Plan Moo - fresh daily milk and years of subsequent calves which will become milk-producers themselves (if they are female - if they are male they are sold to purchase a female to continue the cycle). Plan Corte, weaving, allows us to purchase large-scale looms which the elderly can use to make traditional textiles to sell in the local markets. And of course the reforestation program not only prtects the crops from wind though sustainably provides a source of firewood when needed near to home, rather than walking miles each day collecting wood.
Thank you to all our donors who continually help to make this happen and who will make this happen in the future.
