What were your biggest successes this season?

Each woman's garden is continuing to provide healthy food for her family and some supplemental income. This Spring the women have learned the new skill of fruit tree grafting. This provides another source of food and income.

What challenges did or does your project face?

Our challenge this year was securing enough funding to provide all of the support the women needed to expand and improve their skills.

How are you working to overcome them?

We are implementing projects to increase our donor base.

What did you or your project learn this season that might be useful to others as well?

I think that the biggest things we have learned over the year's of the project is that women know what they need to improve their lives. When they learn the skills and hve the financial resources to implement these projects they run with them.
