Senegal & Kenya
In 2006 we provided a one-time grant of $1,000.00 for DIG, a gardening project run by Steve Bollinger; this projects works with people in Senegal to create a garden at the AIDS hospital in Dakar. This garden is now producing hundreds of pounds of fresh vegetables every month, which are used in the preparation of food for patients in the hospital.

<>The same year, we sent $10,000.00 to Village Hopecore International, a micro funding program started by Dr. K Mugambe. Our grant is being used to fund loans for 12 individuals with HIV/AIDS to facilitate them in becoming contributing members of the Chocoria village in Kenya.
