        January Update:

I know we recently sent out an update to our donors and in the newsletter, but let me step back and get caught up on all the exciting things … and all the challenging things happening here.

It’s been an intense first month, in so many ways.

To recap: Our fundraising campaign “Feeding the Future” kicked off with our first matching grant from the Glasscock Foundation. We met and surpassed that goal before crossing the gulf stream.

Media Update

We were fortunate to be given the opportunity to share our project and the current situation here in Abaco, Bahamas on The Morning Blend. An ABC morning show out of Tampa Bay, Florida. Our founder, Kali Kirkendall, speaks about where we are, how things are going, and how to support our work.

We met our goal of matching a $5,000.00 grant! Thank you!

Most donations are between $20.00-$100.00. Every $ goes to the project and every bit helps!

Khmer Creations

Khmer Creations artisans are paid a salary above market wages along with being offered health benefits and onsite child care. We were excited to partner with them not only because of their noble mission, but also for the extended training they provide to continue to build and invest in the women themselves. There have been  trainings and assistance in all things relating to business and product management all the way to financial literacy and personal development. The collective has the goal of becoming 100% artisan owned, and we are excited to play a role in helping them achieve that
