Christopher is an example of a life you have touched. He is the village chairman, our PTA president, and serves on the HEED Village Advisory Council.
Christopher has eagerly participated in every training and empowerment program we have introduced. More importantly, he has implemented what he has learned.
In 2015, he went to a 3-day training with 30 villagers to learn climate-wise farming. After the training, he changed the crops he was growing, began mulching, composting, and building burms to hold water on his land. Today he has a flourishing coffee plantation, grows natural fertilizers, and is able to pay school fees for all of his children.
In March, the government brought power to the schools. For about $1000 individual homes could also be connected. That is more than 66% of the villagers earn in an entire year, but Christopher had the funds to connect his home to electricity!
Thank you for equipping us to bring empowerment programs that impact lives!
