Useful Links

To start with, I would like to thank everyone who commented and emailed me through this blog or directly. It is very comforting to connect back home. Also, Robi has come across two great websites -

1. The International Book Project - There goals are right in line with why we are so far from home. Check out there site at http://www.intlbookproject.org/.
2. Waterless Gardening Irrigation System - One of our schools has a big garden that they will use to feed their learners (as well as provide food for disadvantaged families of learners at the school). Coming out of the drought, they have been given money to get a Drip Irrigation system. Really cool and it uses grey water, like your bath water and the water you used to do your dishes. Here's their site for the Hippo Roller (a way to transport water larger distance) http://www.hipporoller.org/ , a link to the Drip Irrigation System http://www.hipporoller.org/?Task=system&CategoryID=7706&HeadingText=Food+Security , and to read a review of it, here is a link through the Peace Corps. https://www.peacecorps.gov/resources/donors/contribute/projdetail.cfm?projdesc=688-218

In addition, my mother sent information on another project called the Mother Bear Project which will help children affect by the HIV/AIDS problem in Africa. Here is the website - http://www.motherbearproject.org/

Please check them out a see what you can do to help.
