Cooking Fuel Program
80% of the population in Gachie and Karura use firewood, charcoal and Kerosene (petroleum) as their means of fuel for cooking. FVP will introduce a new way to make cooking fuel from Plant Waste materials. A staff trainer will train groups of individuals at a time to make the fuel. Once trained individuals will have access to free or minimal cost materials to make their own cooking fuel to help their families save money on the more expensive charcoal, kerosene and firewood fuel choices.

OUR NEED IS URGENT!
We currently have over 30,000 books donated to us to start the Gachie Library Project. We need $25,000 ($50 per diaspora member) in customs and clearing taxes and ground transportation to get these books to the village. The village has NEVER had a library before. The world opened up to some community members living in the Diaspora, simply because they had access to books. YOU WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN A CHILD’S LIFE!We also have school desks, microscopes, computer desks for the schools, toys, and clothing items for the community in need.
