crops that this project could provide
Abundant flowers in the Ngezi forest
will help the bees in the production of high quality, deicious tasting honey
Growing seaweed on strings, and then picking and drying this plant can be hard work but the climate is very suitable for quick growth
Report on the Volunteers' Visit October 2013
It was made clear to PSI from their first meeting with Heifer International, that we did not have the resources to undertake such an ambitious project. It was agreed to concentrate on the cow project and the other projects could follow, led by the most ambitious beneficiaries.
The project was explained to the Makangale people by Heifer International. Training of 30 farmers on dairy cattle husbandry took place in November. Shed building started in December and continued into January. 15 cows and a bull will be purchased and distributed in February.
The passing on of the gift of the first born heifer will take place in Nov 2014.
We wish the people of Makangale well in this project.
