â€œHello! My name is Helena. This is our first time harvesting our own rice.â€?
This is our human family living in our village.
We recently welcomed 2021. The year of Building Together!
This is Garmu! Our magical village!
Rice depot with everyone standing in line
This past year during COVID 19 we began running out of food, and we were not the only ones in Liberia.
When food stopped coming from China and India, we started to grow our own!
It was our first time planting rice and creating a garden!
We were fast learners with the help of Uncle James, our farming instructor!
This is how we work together.
This is our Uncle Kenny and our Uncle Mark who are also our partners for the agriculture project.
This is the store weâ€™re building to feed our community and our family.
This is how it stands today. Look what happened when we got more support!
This is our other uncle and auntie, Urs and Ursula Baumann. This is the Baumann Rice Processing Center.
It is graduation day! This is our Momma and Papa with 5 of our siblings graduating from high school.
Papa loves passing down his stories to my brothers and sisters. I love listening to him tell us about his life.
It came time to harvest the rice!
Everyone in our community was eager to join in!
2021: The power of Number 2: creating new relationships while reawakening old ones, and Number 1: having a great mindset every day!
