    Shear Fun

    If you’ve ever tried to cut a small tree branch with a pair of scissors, you’ll know how difficult that endeavor can be. So when scissors just won’t cut it, we turn to garden shears.

    Lucky for us, we could get proper shears for all of the farmers in Annayo to use to ensure they can cut, prune and manage all plants big and small on their farms!

    In a farming community like Annayo, desert weather leads to tough plants that are hard to beat, but with every farm housing a set of loppers and set of shears, they’ll be able to manage these plants and tend to the land in the way they want to.

    “We have lots of land but we cannot grow anything else because there are too many bushes and trees in the way,” said farmer Nimo Adan. With these shears in hand, Nimo will unlock access to all the land he needs!

    This change made possible by Mankind is My Business.
