Merry Christmas!

Building enterprise small farms and small farm enterprises
A holiday message from Latin America.
<<First Name>>, in 2017 you saw Pontis bring farm education to over 100 families in Latin America.  Your support built the foundation to bring that education to even more families next year.
  • Drilled a well and purchased a drill rig to bring more water to more farms
  • Registered as a non-profit in Nicaragua to provide long-term community support
  • Bought new truck (to us) providing safer travel for Ernesto and the Pontis field team
  • Just imported a first shipment of high-tech organic fertilizer to test a community-owned distribution business
  • Developed better methods for small farmers on the Pontis Model Farm
  • Brought new crops to Pontis farm families, such as dragon fruit
  • Helped families weather a hurricane with diverse, resilient crops
  • Grew to six training center locations
  • Six new technicians will be ready in January 2018 to teach more families
All of this builds up to 2018 being a fantastic year to bring more prosperity to more families.
In 2017 Marvin and his family joined the Pontis Sustainable Agriculture Program.  A new house is just one of the many changes in their lives.  Other families see Marvin and wish for similar prosperity.  

You can make that possible.
Please consider a gift to bring farm education, new farm businesses, and prosperity to poor families, like Marvin's, in Latin America this Christmas season.
