Giving More Bean Seeds

We’re conducting our Agriculture Program again this year by giving farmers black bean seeds in 6 new communities, 2 for each of 3 planting seasons. The first two communities were given their seeds in January with 250 recipients, each receiving 4 cans of beans. They first attended an educational session led by Gemi and Wilton, ate a meal of rice, beans and meat prepared by local community women and then received their seeds. Both of the communities were ones in which we had not previously worked and they were very grateful to be the beneficiaries of our generosity. We’re praying for a good harvest in a few months so their families will be able to send their children to school, put food on the table and have some money for family expenses. It’s our way of helping to strengthen rural Haitian families.
