A little message from the job site in Nepal!
By partnering with the local freedom company, Five14Nepal, we have identified several villages that would greatly benefit from sustainable farming. Each village is overwhelmed by poverty and is significantly affected by child trafficking. By creating a sustainable food source, and the potential for new jobs, we can help keep more women and children from being treated as commodities.
As you saw in the video this farm has been built at Five14Nepal’s headquarters in Kathmandu, and will initiate the launch of our new training program. The program will teach aquaponics farming to community leaders, villagers, and anyone else who is interested in learning how to create sustainable solutions in their community. The need in Nepal is great, and so is our mission there. By establishing this training program that provides tools for empowerment, we are helping to create a more free and hopeful world.
In addition to this project in Nepal, we are also receiving farm requests from Peru, Haiti, Guatemala, Myanmar, and several countries throughout Eastern Africa. We are eager to establish more farms in these communities in the months and years ahead, and we welcome your ongoing support with immense gratitude.
Of course, we cannot do this work without your generous support. Thank you for everything that you have contributed to our work so far. If you are wondering how you can support the freedom work being done in Nepal, and in other countries in the future here's how you can help:
