Dear Friends and Supporters:

I hope this missive meets you well.

Just to inform you that we met with the community leaders of Nsongwa Mile 90 recently. This community is amongst the four noted with high recruits of child combatants and separatist fighters. Also, the land is not fertile.

After the meeting, the community leaders promised to rally and mobilize community members for a workshop which will be facilitated by us called “Building on Community Assets” on a date to be scheduled by them.

We would be training them on beekeeping, tree and flower planting. We also located an asset in the community - a community member who has been carrying out some activities worth building on.

He termed his startup “Many Colors,” is planting flowers, and is into eco-house decoration as well.

We advised him to think of a botanical garden which will serve as a relaxation park and a site for sports, among other activities. We will be working with him to come forth with a botanical garden in the community.

We also used this opportunity to talk about Global Network for Religion of Children (GNRC).

I will update you on the upcoming workshop.

Thanks,
Alex
