HN Issue 17: Gift Guide Updates!

What happened to all those Gift Guide items? Five success stories from Burundi, Guatemala, Rwanda, Haiti, and Cambodia.

BURUNDI: Fruit & Veggie Seeds

BURUNDI CO-OP FARMER NEARLY LOST IN A FOREST OF BEANS!



An agricultural co-op in Burundi is experiencing more than average high yields from their Gift Guide Fruit and Veggie Seeds. In 2011, the cooperative planted 10 kilos of climbing bean seeds and harvested 25 kilos of beans. The following year, they again planted 10 kilos of seeds, but this time harvested 78 kilos of beans. In 2013, the association repeated the same input as the previous two years, and received a tenfold return! This year, 2014, they planted 10 kilos of seed and could barely contain their excitement as they measured the bean crop. The cooperative harvested 358 kilos of beans...from the same piece of land!


GUATEMALA: Breakfast Club

GUATEMALAN GIRL ENJOYS A MEAL AT SCHOOL







The San Juan Chamelco Municipal Mayor was delighted to receive your help for their primary school food program: "We thank FH for their unconditional support to the most vulnerable groups of San Juan Chamelco, and recognize and value the integral work of FH."


RWANDA: Dairy Cow

VIATEUR PROUDLY POSES WITH HIS COW

Twagizumukiza Viateur is married with three children and until recently the family was battling malnutrition. Since receiving a dairy cow, however, the family’s health has drastically improved as their diet now includes milk! They also use the cow manure to enrich their land and grow yummy veggies for better food. When the cow calves, they’ll be able to sell it for much needed family income. They’re milking this gift for all she’s worth!


HAITI: Accounting Kit

JUMOSTHENE (CENTRE) IS A SUCCESSFUL FARMER THANKS TO HIS SAVINGS AND LOANS GROUP








Thanks to the Accounting Kit given by generous Canadians, Jumosthene's Savings and Loans Group was able to help him secure a field to farm. “I remember one day I was in a very difficult situation where I need 3000 gourdes ($80 CND) to pay my land registration and I asked someone for a loan. The person told me “You’ll get the money by tomorrow!” but I never got the money from that person. But two month ago I had a similar situation - by the grace of God, with my Savings and Loans Group, it was so easy to solve my problem.” - Jumosthene Felmy


CAMBODIA: Gardening Tools 

FARMERS VIEW LOCAL VEGGIE GARDEN
