    Sharing a meal, celebrating success

    Day 89

    Neighbor to Neighbor

    Today is our last day in Annayo, the farming community that’s doing their best to rebuild after years of devastating drought.

    Despite the hardships they face, they’re optimistic. They have so many ideas for how to make things better, day by day.

    To wrap things up, and thank the community for an amazing month together, we got gathered everyone for a meal – a time to relax, take a load off, and enjoy each other’s company.

    Farmers sat beside security guards, who sat beside local council members, who sat beside reporters from the media, documenting the changes made.

    The meal was delicious – goat meat, rice, pasta, vegetables, and spices. A feeling of contentment settled in, as hearts and tummies were filled.

    “This is the first time an NGO has actually come and helped the community,” said Issa from the local town council. “We are so humbled by the support and grateful for all that you have come and done in our community.”

    The positive change that’s happened over the past 30 days won’t stop here. Not by a long shot. This community is closer knit than ever before, and ready to take on the next harvest, the next challenge – and celebrate the next success.

    This change made possible by Mankind is My Business.
