Breadfruit Education Tour

The year is almost over now and I was on one of my last tours to provide breadfruit tree and fruit tree seedlings to vulnerable families and communities. But I don’t just hand the plants out to people. The most important part is to educate people. To explain about the plants and nutrition, about ways to use the plants and how to grow them and take care of them. It is a big task. But we are planting a future here and that’s why we prepare people and plants alike. 2015 will be our year. We will make it big.

Merry Xmas, Everyone :)

A christmas gift to mr Holden Chafwakale’s family. Mr Holden is crippled, retired and broke. A gift of 2 breadfruit trees, pawpaws and oranges will help him relax as he gardens. Then when they are grown they will provide his family with food and income. Thanks to all of our German donors and volunteers.Twalumba (‘thank you’) for your love and concern.

New schools for Planting a Future

We are happy to announce that we are taking 2 more schools into the project:

target school2Muyala Community School is 86 km away from the greatnorth road (Livingstone road). It has 356 kids and is managed by 2 untrained teachers. There is no feeding programme hence kids bring thier own lunch to school, usually unalcoholic sweet beer in a 350ml bottle πŸ˜‰ Lets pray for these kids so that they can have a permanent building, trained teachers, a borehole and textbooks. Our humble task is to give the kids fruit tree seedlings so that they can have an orchad.

We bought a wheelbarrow and barbed wire. The wheelbarrow is for ferrying soil for seedlings from the river and the barbed wire is for keeping goats, cows and pigs from the seedlings. We could not afford shade netting yet. But at least the risk of the seedlings being eaten is low now πŸ˜‰
