This gift provides enough seed and fertiliser to make profit that can buy a buffalo that can pull a cart or plough. A buffalo means a farmer's freedom to work the fields, harvest and tend their own crops and even transport them where they need to go! It's a farmer's most prized possession.
*From working with poor farming families in Myanmar for more than 10 years, we know that items like shoes, school uniforms and bikes are urgently needed. Many poor farming families choose to purchase these items when they make a profit from taking a part in our New Hope Seed Banks programme. However, we cannot guarantee that these items will be purchased in every case, as it is up to the farmers to choose what they do with the profit they make on harvesting the seeds.
