International volunteers, an orphanage, and a garden

The global ripple… young volunteers from three continents plant a year-round garden in Africa to feed local orphans and impoverished students –> cows, goats, & ducks invade and eat the vegetables –>  young volunteers lack the funds to build fence to save garden –> I purchase fencing & help young volunteers build the fence –> orphans & students have healthy food supply again –> young volunteers ask to work with us in the USA and Peru next year. All this for a $150 donation for fence supplies, some hard labor, and epic blisters on my hands. The global ripple is perfect and so easy…
