FARMING GOD'S WAY UPDATE

The team has been very busy with Farming God's Way work and sharing. Perhaps the most exciting growth has been with the farmers who have been trained, they have implemented their knowledge, and are working towards feeding their families, selling into the market and supplying corn to the ARC for processing and sale. The team has been very busy visiting and revisiting several farms a month.

KONAH'S COMMUNICATION

The weekly workers' training has begun. The goal is to take the work crew through the manual called "Improve your employability". It is hope that taking them through this lesson will help some to improve their work habit. We are also conducting performance evaluations. A three man team consisting of Dr. Kiamu, Bill and myself began the workers evaluation this month. Several workers were interviewed and the process will continue into next month.

As a team we are appreciative of the the newly created mid - managers. These managers (Peter on the left and Ezekiel on the right in the picture below) have begun working with the different groups of workers. The challenge which we are struggling to over come is the idea of setting up goals for each sector of the ARC. Peter and Ezekiel paid a visit to a newly created farm last week. Mr. Sam Slangon invited them to visit his farm so that they could advise him on some of the things he would like to plant and how they could be of help to him in this work.
