Luckya and Vibee’s Wedding
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
When Vibee’s father told us that he wanted to give us a gift to celebrate our recent wedding, we were very touched.
We were already so lucky to be surrounded by family and friends on the day, and fortunate to live in a safe and prosperous country. We have all we need. So when the three of us sat down to talk about how we might mark the occasion, we immediately thought of Palmera.
We’ve had links with Palmera since its early days, and love that it makes such a meaningful difference to the lives of people in Sri Lanka, a country that means so much to us. The challenges people there face on a daily basis are nothing short of heartbreaking.
By supporting Palmera and creating opportunities for people who need a hand up, we know that we are making someone’s life a bit better. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our love than by sharing it far and wide. We hope that you might consider doing the same.
We’ve decided to put our donation towards the Connecting to Markets project.
This project will help small-scale farmers build successful business farms in the village of Kanthansamy Nagar. In this village, building a thriving farm costs as little as $349 per farmer; this is only $78 a year over the 5-year programme. Each of the 105 farmer will learn how to compete within the farming marketplace and the skills they learn will help them break down barriers that keep them excluded.
