The first group of recipients has already done their Permaculture Introduction Course, and are looking forward to getting sponsors and converting their land to permaculture.
The whole group here is exited about the progress and we are happy that we are all in these. we are a strong group here ,motivated and is already going on with meetings. The group have written all their family profiles, we have created email acounts and today we are going to set up skrill accounts and the take family photos for each recipient.
Thanks for your support, it made me move great steps especially when my fence was broken by the hippos from lake Victoria. The continuous support made it come back to normalcy. I hope we are going to have similar cooperation between ourselves, Evans plus all the wonderful group supporters.
