March 2020 - a message from our sponsored Kira Farm student Tom
I hope this finds you well and your family are doing okay. I am doing fine - having the best time while learning life-changing skills from Kira.
It is a lovely warm Tuesday morning and after writing this email, I will be going to my plot which was given to me to practise Farming God’s Way which is a very nice way of farming we are being taught here. From just learning about it, I am amazed by how this method helps cater for the soil but as well as conserve the environment. We have also been exposed to local and international environmental challenges. Can you believe that if we Ugandans continue to cut down trees for firewood and burn bushes for farming we will not have any trees left by 2050? This is really alarming and we all should be praying and doing something about it. I’ll teach you more about Farming God’s Way as time goes on!
At the moment, I am happy to inform you that I have decided to do building and carpentry and as of now, I love the progress.
I am more than willing to take these skills back into my community, changing my life and everybody else’s life that comes along. I am looking forward to telling you more about planting into my plot in my next communication.
Please send greetings to your friends and everybody else. Love you, my friend! I have as well attached a photograph of me while clearing the land and will keep you in the know about how planting goes, I can’t wait!
Thank you so much for all that you are doing, may the almighty bless you!
