2018 Agros Grant

Jun 9, 2018

Our club issued a substantial grant to fund the water project that provides piping and storage for Luz del Manana. However, Alberto Solano, from the Agros headquarters in Seattle, spoke to our club at our last meeting with the sad news that there is an uprising in Nicaragua by students against Ortega.  The government has essentially shut down much of the infrastructure of the country making delivery of produce deliveries by the villagers.  Alberto asked the club to grant flexibility in the use of the funds to allow the villagers to produce goods for themselves, and to provide storage and other services as needed to secure their survival. This appears to be a year “on-hold.”
