Over the last year I've been taking the long-view regarding Floresta.org. I would like to settle into years of support. Floresta is a great organization that nurtures communities in developing countries, providing training in sustainable agriculture practices, as well as spiritual discipleship.
So I have been glad to participate a little bit in their new Burundi program. Over time, I hope to get to know the folks involved. Hopefully learn about the country. Observe and write about the progress. I'm still pretty green, and I don't know a ton, but what I've been learning is really cool.
Late last year Floresta Burundi officially launched. They have hired an indigenous staff, formulated a first-year plan, and begun their agricultural programs.
I will try to keep you updated on milestones and general progress over time. Consider joining in financial support and prayer. As I've mentioned before, the first-year budget for the Floresta Burundi is $65,000. That means that even a small contribution goes a long way for this very worthy program.
