The best farmer teachers Mindful Generation's has trained are in Kenya. They work together as a group teaching fellow farmers and have had some amazing results. They have created a registered group and are now ready to implement the first ever county fair. Developing a county fair would allow them to spread the word to others in the county and help them to finance their teaching program on their own. It is always the ultimate goal for Mindful Generations to be sure that the teaching can continue with out outside help, insuring that the farmers take responsibility and credit for the programs we helped them develop.
A County Fair is fun, uplifting, and a family event, that will allow our farmers to demonstrate proven practices and offer sign up for upcoming classes. This fair will also give our farmers the opportunity to make some money thru games, selling food, contests and admission fees from other vendors. The group has determined early spring to be the best time of the year to hold fair and if we set the date for 2018, it gives us enough time to plan the details.
We will need to raise $30,000 for this project and it will money well spent to help this group become totally independent. The group has been planning this for approximately two years and they are excited to show their country what they know. We are proud they understand the important role they play in their communities and want to share their knowledge with others.
If you can help us to reach our goals and and would like us to designate your donation to a specific fund, please let us know. We will be sure to use the funds as directed.
Here's what's in the works for 2017
