Yaalini Turns One
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
Our mahal (daughter) Yaalini யாழினி is turning one. She is blessed with two annahs (big brothers), family, and friends who love her and will support her grow into a strong Thamil woman. She wants for nothing. As we celebrate her first birthday we’d like to share her with women of North-East Sri Lanka who are raising strong Thamil women in difficult circumstances.
Palmera does fantastic work. Their projects reach some of the most disadvantaged communities and ignite real and sustainable change. We’ve been supporters of their work for a long time and can vouch for their integrity. We have chosen to support the Connecting to Markets project.
This project will help build thriving business farms in the village of Kanthansamy Nagar. In this village building a thriving farm costs as little as $349 per farmer; which is only $78 a year over the 5-year programme. Each of the 105 farmer will learn how to compete and be successful within the farming marketplace and the skills they learn will help them break down barriers that keep them excluded. We think that’s money well spent!
We’ve set the target at the amount both her brothers raised so please help her beat them!
Lots of love
Tammy, LP, JT, Khyilan and Yaalini
