September 2018 - a message from our sponsored Kira Farm student Lawrence

Dear Nick and Lorna.

So nice hearing from you. I am glad to know that the weather is getting better in your country. I am absolutely fine thanks for asking. It is a blessing being in a palace which does not only take care of our training but also give us the best medical attention we would have never got while we are at home.

Talking of care, I am learning a lot about good hygiene practices but also the use of natural medicine so that even if I am at home I can take care of myself with minimum costs.

I am happy to let you know that we are receiving a lot of rain now so we have all busy planting more crops in our gardens. I have still planted maize and beans but done crop rotation. I am now becoming an expert in conservational farming so I am doing everything with minimum supervision and so far with what I have done, I am so sure I can also perfectly teach other people about this farming.

I will not be able to harvest my plants because by the time their ready I will be back home but it gives me much joy that I will have left some food supply for the trainees who will be on Kira by then.

I am so excited and looking forward to the few remain months on Kira. Thanks a lot for your wonderful support which has seen me come this far.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
