Bananas, guavas, new water tank, and nursery classes!

Hello hello hello!!!

We are happily sharing this week’s update from the children of Kano and Maiduguri of The Lovatt Foundation and showing what your donations were able to achieve so far. These descriptions apply to the pictures in the same order:

“The stalks of the maize have become the thatched walls and roof of a shelter for the animals during the heat of the day. While more peanuts and a harvest of okra were gathered to go in the soup pot! All these are satisfying and collaborative physical labors that our children enjoy and learn from.

Banana and guavas were planted yayyyyyyyyy

New water tank was finally installed to save the back breaking work of drawing the water out of an underground reservoir.

The guy in the black and plaid shirt in one of the pictures makes his living from a nursery. Today, when the children had gathered the sand, manure, organic matter , and recycled bags, he came to guide them in making a good bedding mixture. The money helps us pay him to come for three afternoons a week. With the photos and drawings the children are making their own little book about procedures and processes for making a nursery and raising plants!!!

You have given us a wonderful start and the children are thriving with all the funds for these activities and projects.

Your money bought fruit for the children to eat as well. They “ate like scientists” and saved the seeds for future planting

Thank you!!! Peace and love to everyone

More updates from Nigeria “Building Things”

Peace to everyone and greetings from Nigeria 🙂

The beautiful children we are helping, have been designing chicken tractors and working out the costs for their various Food Security projects.

Look what hope you have planted in Nigeria together with Mangoes to Share!

Here is the first chicken tractor and stories the children have composed to go with their experiences. Reading and writing everywhere as they feed their minds and bodies.

!!! Water supply was finally sorted out and ready for the 8 months of dry season in the nursery. They have several hens for egg supply and a goat for milk.

(P.S. All the animals under the children’s care are mainly for the love and affection part of the healing. They are dearly cared for and can expect a long and happy life)

Have a wonderful weekend in the sunny Miami and as always thank you for your support :)))

Today in Kano – aren’t they delectable wonderful kids!

If you are feeling sad or down because of the small things, look around and realize how many people can use your help and support. These kids are working hard to fulfill their dreams of having a food supply and potable water…

Today in Kano, Nigeria:

“Aren’t they delectable, wonderful kids.

Today, in Kano, the children set to work getting their water supply sorted out. They have had a really hard time with water supply in this house because the real estate agents swore there was a water supply and it turns out there isn’t.

So there is this reservoir that has been clogged with rubbish and today they cleared it, ready for the next stage.

As people with plans for a nursery they know they need water and they may have to buy it, or bring it in a barrow each day, but they are sure they will add this work to their daily routine of study.

Doesn’t it make the heart swell to see them happy in the labours. They have been working through all the group and planning discussions with various experts and they are taking it step by step.

Thank you for enabling the dreaming to become a reality”

Wishing you a wonderful weekend, full of gratitude!
