Let’s Jam

Fred’s Goal:

Let’s help send 150 Cubans to specialized Train-the-Trainer Farming Workshops.

These workshops invest in the development of skills among Cubans and empowers them to share their knowledge and assist their own communities in improving farming and nutrition.

What We Have Accomplished:

PWRDF has partnered with the Cuban Council of Churches (CCC) to help families implement sustainable agricultural techniques that provide sustenance and nutrition to the household and adds additional income through the sale of surplus items. With the help of our Cuban partners, we have been able to help families grow and preserve their own foods, ensuring that they have access to food even during the dry season.

$300 covers the full cost of sending one person to a 10-day “Train the Trainers” workshop

$150 covers half the cost of sending one person to a 10-day “Train the Trainers” workshop

A PWRDF Good News Story: Let’s Jam

Roberto lives in Havana with his wife, two children and mother-­‐in-­‐law. Two years ago, he received agricultural training from PWRDF’s partner the Cuban Council of Churches (CCC). With help from his two young children, he started a family micro-­‐farm with just one rabbit, two chickens and some crops, all on the roof of his house. Today, Roberto is able to feed his family daily by collecting eggs and meat and preserving a wide range of fruits and vegetables. His farm is so abundant that Roberto is able to generate additional income by selling his surplus of healthy food to the community.
