The House of Mercy home for boys is located just outside of San Pedro Sula, Honduras. San Pedro is mostly known as the murder capitol of the world and has been ranked the most violent city in the world for the past three years. About 3 years ago, we designed and help build a Sustainable Microfarm™ and trained the directors and boys how to maintain it. Last week we returned to help replace the bamboo shade cover with galvanized steel support for the shade cloth. We also will be doing more training this next week to improve the overall care and production of the microfarm.
Thus far the boys have been enjoying the fish and produce from the microfarm. We are very excited that they will be enlarging the growing area by two times this year! They will now be able to sell fish and produce to begin making a small income. Yet another successful Glodev project helping the poor help themselves!
