500 Training Certificates!!!! 
Jader just received his training certificate for the Pontis Sustainable Agriculture Program module 2.  The Pontis Team, and that includes YOU, just surpassed 500 certificates and there are 40 more signed and ready to award to students who have recently completed modules in Ometepe.  WOW!
Exciting?  YES! 
Two dedicated groups of Pontis supporters purchased the well drill rig and are now making sure it gets fully updated.  A new chain will dig deeper wells.

The Pontis drilling team should be trained and ready to drill the first irrigation wells on farms in February or March.  That means a farm family can irrigate and increase their yield by over 50%.  OK, now are you excited?
Help Us Train Jader and Dig Wells in 2019 
We've told you a bit about how instability in Nicaragua slowed the Pontis team down for a couple of months but I hope you see how the Nicaraguan team has kept the training going and the well program is back in business.  

Jader won't get his 3rd and 4th certificates, and finish the Pontis Sustainable Agriculture Program, without your help.
