Update on the Hope for Children Shelter in Congo!
Following the work carried out in February 2020 (ploughing the land and sowing the corn seeds), we can report that the corn crop is growing well, and is scheduled for harvesting around July.
In addition to this agricultural project, the shelter is planning to start a soap making enterprise after five volunteers attended a soap making workshop in March 2020 (below).
With the plan of growing and harvesting two sets of corn crops per year, and establishing the soap making business in the near future, the Hope for Children shelter aim to become self-sufficient in feeding and looking after the 60 orphans they house!!
