Now that the the Blessing Field Project in the Quiche mountains of Guatemala is firmly established, after a whole year in operation and several different crops harvested, the young people are adding some animals to the ‘farm’.
Last year they took delivery of three cows and they have now added a bull as well.
The latest addition to the project is a chicken coop, built by a visiting US group. Once it is completed, they will buy some hens and use the eggs at the programs in Quiche.
This project is a real blessing, not just for the community, but for the young people who are managing it. They are learning new, valuable skills which will be very helpful for them as they grow up and they are enjoying seeing the tangible results of all their hard work.
