Greenhouses are dotting remote Qinghai

Thanks to the ongoing and generous support of GPA Global, our 2017 aim of funding the construction of greenhouses for 200 families is well on the way.  As of today, 96 families are already enjoying produce from their greenhouses. A further 43 families will finish construction their greenhouses in a matter of weeks. 32 more families have been selected and will be commencing construction shortly. As for the remaining families, we will be constructing their greenhouses as soon as winter eases early 2018.
  
None of this would be possible if not for the generosity of schools, families, individuals and companies who were willing to fund a greenhouse for a family. And, of course, with every donation then matched by Adam & Chandra, Tom & Jackie, and the amazing team at GPA Global.  Our special thanks also to key contributions from QSI Shekou, awesome Nick and the 8th Annual Charity Auction (Oct 2016) where this all got started.
