Imagine becoming an orphan the first day of your life, then being whisked away to an opharnage. Spend 6 years there and then coming back home to an alcholic father, extreme poverty and a caring step mom. Imagine the horror! That boy has seen it all and will probably end his life poor and illiterate. Its people like him who motivate us to plant trees in villages and schools just to give a little hope.
‘Silhouette of destiny’
so dark and haunting
tender arms grooping for hope
his voice, lone and icy
his eyes on fire
his belly moans
he’s thrown his dice
and we look the other way
lest he reminds us of our fears
and mess our illusions of grandeur But he lives and we live
In this silhoutte of destiny
none is the winner
see he is still there
a reminder of our vulnerability.

Patrick is married to three women and has twenty children.He is a small scare farmer withfour cows. He lost 25 cows from corridor disease.Due to global warming and lack of farming implements the family is not able to grow enough food to meet its needs. It is a hard time indeed from July to April when the little maize runs out. Planting a future is targeting such families.It is raising breadfruit, guavas, orange, moringa and pawpaw seedlings in order to donate to these families as a cheaper and environment friendly mode of guaranteeing food security. Help the project reach as many vulnerable families and schools as possible.
Together we can plant a better future.
