Sunday-April 2, 2017. North Lauderdale, Florida
About This Project: Start date APril 2, 2017 @ 8:00am
OBJECTIVE: This concept of planting one's own vegetables and fruits to feed the poor has caught fire in 5 countries where Begin To Serve Foundation serves, has become a focalpoint of our Foundation. The pressure to provide food for the poorest of the poor, is a great challenge for our service partners as well for the village leaders those communities look toward for food sources every day. By teaching others to return to basic farming, we intend to have this inexpensive, food supplying process with the capabilityof feeding the poor for generations to come, duplicated globally.
By partnering with the City of North Lauderdale, we've acquired gardening plots in which the homeless will participate. When the food and veggetables are ready to be harvested, the City along our organization will host garden parties and serve refreshments (healthy green juices and pastries--carrot cakes and muffins etc), all made from the garden produce The community will be invited to these events in order to meet the homeless in their community, make friends with, and help with their social living conditions whenever possible. We believe people will care more for those in need when they feel they have a friend living on their streets, versus someone who will forever remain a nameless stranger.

July/August 2017. Punjabi, India
The video features some tribal people in India who are very precious to us. We'll be visiting them this summer to follow-through on our promises to supply 2 deep water wells for all their needs. Currently they have to walk ~ 1/4 mile for a drink of water! Starting April 2017 they will begin receiving seeds for planting various fruit trees, veggie gardens and ground provisions for continued survival. Due to the condition of their straw homes (no lighting after sunset), solar lanterns will be provided.
NEEDS: We need serious minded individuals who are compassionate at heart, and love the poor, to freely donate to this cause, as well as travel with us to India this summer. Each well is a nominal cost of only US$1,395 and seeds are only $1.59c each packet. Anyone donating $700 or more, will have their name on a special steel plate which will be affixed to a memorial slab to be constructed at the site of each water well (part of your legacy).
In order to help make these projects successful, we need your help. Your donation of any amount, will go a long way in helping to sustain the lives of these amazing friends living in these tribal regions, for many years to come. Signup to travel with us this summer by clicking the partner with us button. You'll receive a receipt for tax credits whenever you file your taxes.
