The project is ending, because there are so many more projects that need help. Carol will provide what's needed to reach the goal. Thanks See More

THE STORY:

In a very poor village in Mexico,six women are working hard to provide their families with a better life. They have been given the rights to raise crops on a piece of land, the San Juan Cosala Community Garden. Every day the women and their children come together to weed, water, plant, and sometimes harvest. With new skills acquired, they have cemented an area for meetings and English lessons and finished a storage room for donated tools. The women are composting in hopes of improving the soil. Even with all this work, the vegetable output is minimum at this time. In order to help them have hope for the future, we are appealing to you to donate funds to provide a stipend to the women for one year. If each women could get just $50 US a month it would make a huge difference in their lives. Most of these women cook with firewood and heat water for washing over the embers. Because they realize that education is critical, they scrape to pay bus fare to get children to school. (For just one child to attend high school costing them the equivalent of $24 a month.) For others, the federal health care program doesn't cover all of their medical needs, especially some presriptions. Having the additional funds would make it possible for them to dream of a better future for their families.
