- I have never seen children this happy to see cabbage, eggs and beans.
- Guatemala's verdant land is capable of feeding its citizens. These are some great looking cabbages!
- Land ownership among single-mother households is essential toward enabling these Mom's to feed their children. It is the only way to avoid the need for FFF and AAV to provide food donations on a monthly basis. We would love to be "out of a job" and empower Candalaria to feed her children without assistance. Owning enough land to plant a garden and support farm animals is our is the key to self-sufficiency for this family.

|Rosa, with food donation|
Did I mention that she is blind?
Rosa can't see the cabbage, beans and eggs that we donated yesterday, but she can feel the warmth of friendship from her American sponsor. Helping Rosa would not be possible for us without the assistance of Adopt-A-Village. It takes a group of determined women and an engaged sponsor to create significant change for women like Rosa who have so many needs.
