FTC Huerto abundante 2

“In Guatemala, we are not allowed to go out to the communities during this pandemic so we are doing our best to stay in touch and be supportive through technology. Our youth leaders had recently learned about the importance of hand-washing (before the COVID 19 outbreak); and they have taken it upon themselves to train their friends and family members in correct hand-washing techniques to help keep everyone safe. As part of the training, the families learn about a water-saving tool that they can make out of recycled products, since the drought in Guatemala continues. So they get a two-for-one increase in knowledge! Our staff has created WhatsApp groups and they are conducting video conferences to stay in daily touch with the communities and to receive these lovely photos and videos that the community leaders are sending back. I am attaching a few of those for your enjoyment. Our Ag Technician is also in touch with all of the households that have home gardens to help them trouble shoot and keep their plants healthy and thriving. These are the same folks that will benefit from SPI seeds in the future.”

Thanks for all your help,
