The connections and learning achieved with your support and generosity are opening new doors. In the past few months, Seed Programs International has forged several new partnerships in Honduras. 

Two of the partnerships were achieved through the powerful international network of Rotarians. Here in Asheville, North Carolina, Asheville Rotarians travel yearly to be hosted by the Copan Ruinas club in Honduras. The team includes dental and opthamology professionals who provide dental and eye care for hundreds of children and adults who have never received such services.

Last year, local Rotarians asked Rotary counterparts in Copan whether vegetable seeds would make a difference in these rural mountain communities. The answer was a resounding YES, and partnerships were formed with two local NGOs who had the capacity to distribute the seeds and support their use. 

Seeds were received in Spring and have been distributed and planted. Farmer support is provided by Mennonite Social Action Committee (provider of the photos attached to this update) and World Vision Honduras.

Impact: enough seed and support to grow more than 600 vegetable gardens. Thank you!
