Clementina Threads the Needle

When it comes to inspirational stories from our communities, it is hard to find one more affecting than Clementina’s journey. Though born able-bodied, a childhood bout of meningitis resulted in a permanent disability that continues to make walking a challenge, but never diminished her agile mind or superhuman commitment to others.

To Stir, with Love

When partners from an Outreach-affiliated community in Malawi considered how to best serve their nutritional needs during annual rainy seasons, they identified a three-course remedy. First, to organize and implement fertilizer-making initiative – by combining animal waste, sand and other locally available, organic materials, partners could create a steady supply of nutrient-rich benefit for their plan’s second stage and centerpiece: small “homestead” gardens for families that could be densely planted and easily maintained, producing crops in drier times of year.

Seems like it was only a few months ago that we were sharing the story of some of our community partners from the Philippines’ successful fish-hatching project. Remember?

The Busy Season

Farming is all about timing: When to plant, when to water, when to harvest, when to sell; even when to wake up every morning to ensure that the work that needs doing gets done. Show up too early or too late, and crops suffer.
