It's Giving Tuesday! And we have so much to be grateful for. We've had a terrific event earlier this month, and thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we were able to raise over $8,000 and auctioned off 14 art pieces by the very talented Aurelie Fischer! These funds will directly impact the lives of the people we serve in rural Cambodia, by empowering families through food security and economic development.
What's more, we're happy to share with you our latest video which walks you through the construction of our family aquaponics systems in rural Cambodia. These food systems empower families to provide better nutrition for their children, in a country where 40% of them have their growth stunted because of malnutrition (learn more). These systems are also a new source of income for many families, as they help us grow a variety of superfoods and health teas that we help them sell at a profit. Check out our newest video and learn how we build our food systems:
But we're also very excited to share with you our brand new e-shop, where you will be able to find our unique merchandise themed around aquaponics and traditional Cambodian arts. You will also find on this e-shop our first-ever book, containing beautiful pictures of rural Cambodia and our work, as well as a few stories. It's a great read for all ages, and a great way to support and share our work!
