Heri ya Mwaka Mpya! ( Happy New Year!!)

It is raining SAND!! We are so thankful for the rains that came in December of last year. Dodoma saw 17 days of rain fall and our sand dam sites saw tremendous amount of rain. So much so that the sand river are quickly maturing. Usually, it takes about 3 to 4 raining seasons for a sand dam to mature.  Well, it has only been one month and the dams are already filled with sand. What a blessing!! ( Please see photos posted below).

Soweto, Zuzu sand dam  filled with Sand from the rains in Dec.2011
 We are now really encouraging the groups to take full advantage of the sand dam by preparing gardens along the banks of the sand rivers, and to plant trees. So far, over one thousand fruit and ordinary trees have been planted at 4 sand dam sites.  Preparation is underway to conduct one Farming God's Way training session at our newest site, Chololo.
