Rev Wasike informed me yesterday that due to food shortages in Kenya, the daily rations for the kids in school are cut down to a cup of porridge at lunch time. That gives a new sense of urgency to our School Garden project, which aims to provide a sustainable food supply to the pupils in school. We have a fundraising group on the ground in Nairobi and we need your help to put together a grant proposal in order to obtain the seed money for the project.
Pellital is a Microfinance Institution. The goal of Pellital is to aid in alleviating the poverty through a microfinance program in Agnam-Goly, Senegal. The word Pellital means "commitment" in Fulani, the language spoken in Agnam-Goly. In this rural village, microfinance opportunities have till now not been available to most of the inhabitants. The Pellital team's objective is to assist loan recipients in the successful planning and execution of small businesses that will propel the families of Agnam-Goly out of poverty.
Some neighbours have brought up the idea to try to establish a partnership with a safari tour provider to the Nile source to give tourists an incentive to donate a bednet for the village. The idea is to use the relatively new idea of a social enterprise, that is to say an enterprise that does reinvest its profit in social projects. Safari providers might have an interest in showing a "better" image by offering the possibility to do something "good" to their guests.
