Goals for 2017
In Nicaragua, we will double the number of families who are participating in our OrganiCasa greenhouse program. This will bring the total number of families that operate greenhouses to 52 families. This will result in over 200 more people in almost 20 communities being able to grow organic vegetables to improve their diets, at the same time earning money from the sale of vegetables in local markets.
In Nepal, we plan to build three schools in new rural villages. We will be conducting assessments and surveys with community members to jointly establish long-range plans in the new communities that will build sustainability through education, economic development, women’s empowerment, and infrastructure improvement. We’ll be expanding our livestock programs with women’s cooperatives and doing the final training of our weaving cooperative to put it on independent footing – finally achieving economic sustainability!
