Greenhouses are the only way to grow a variety of nutricious vegetables for communities in Peru’s High Andes where the climate is harsh, the air thin, and poor soil means malnutrition is a constant problem for children and adults.
We are hoping to raise $3,000 and build a greenhouse for a charitable hostel in Amparae, a community located 12,000 ft above sea level. The hostel provides housing to 45 children from poor communities who would otherwise have to walk for two hours to get to school. Most of the children suffer from malnutrition. The greenhouse will add vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, squash, tomatoes and broccoli to their diet.
We invite you to give these children a healthier start in life.Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to donate or participate in the mission to build the greenhouse. A date for the trip will be set soon after the funds are raised.
