Our vision is that in 5 years from now most of the schools have orchards like that with breadfruit trees and pawpaws and papaya and other fruit trees growing. That way we can make sure the kids will have a divers lunch every day and we can stop malnutrition.
That is why I keep checking our nursery all the time and see our seedlings grow.
Finally last Sunday we could do the first money transfer from Germany to Zambia. In our fundraising campaign around Christmas we collected around 3.500 Euros. The first 500 Euros now arrived in Zambia and I could buy some of the items on our wish list.
For now our priority is to protect the seedlings from too much sun. That is why we decided to first buy some shade nettings and poles to build a shelter.
Since we are still waiting for Western Union to confirm the verification of the bank account holder we now use the time to build shelter. As soon as this is all through the remaining money will be transferred so that we can buy more things, like the much needed water pump and water tanks, as well as fences.
A gift of banana suckers from a 70 year old man to planting a future.what a gift. Thanks badaala. These will be donated to Maluba community pre school .
A young girl volunteers to carry two breadfruit trees. She knows they will feed her and her kids in years to come. That’s the beauty of Planting A Future : the willingness of all to work for free.
When the weather is right and there is a bit of gas in the car I get my breadfruit books, shovels, watering can, some breadfruit trees, a few papayas and oranges and then go round villages preaching and planting the future.
From the Seventh Day Church’s medical guide 🙂 what a wonder fruit: breadfruit has been taught as the a very important food source for vegetarians and a source of medicine by seventh day adventist church
