We currently work with 32 coconut growers’ co-ops, totaling 150,000 members. Members own 3 to 300 trees. We enable coconut growers to earn more money through selling their coconut husks instead of discarding them. We are working with the growers’ co-ops and providing 20 brush-making machines for each co-op, along with education and technical expertise. This allows us to offer employment to 600 more people. Sakti Agro donated an acre of land for a school, which has already welcomed 30 kids! In addition, we opened the doors to a women’s clinic, a small children’s library and a playground. A village administrative office was constructed as a help center where the local population can freely express their unresolved problems, and we will help within our jurisdictions to resolve them. Dozens of PC tablets were donated to the Nuffield School for the Deaf and Blind in Jaffna where nearly 100 children were introduced to computer science through code.org.
