As we follow the ladies working on their garden at Luly we can see the seedlings shooting up paired with the hope of 26 women. It has been an enriching experience for the World Wide Village staff on the ground to witness the soil transform from a dusty hill into 26 plots and now green sprouting gardens. Soon the ladies will be reaping the benefits of their hard work.
Some of them will feed their families with their crop; other will take it to the Haitian “Mache”, an outdoor market similar to a farmers market to be sold. The ladies were selected from the community of Luly due to the hardships they face, making them good candidates for a garden. For most of the ladies this is their first garden.
Twice a day the ladies show up to water and maintain their garden plot. We stopped by this week and were able to speak with one of the ladies attending her garden. We wanted you to meet her.
Clairline is 26-years-old, does not have any children and was married on January 1st 2012 in Pastor Lahens’ church in Luly! She plans to sell some of her produce in the mache and keep some of it for her family. Her husband is a fisherman who sells Lambi in the mache. When her garden is done I think I’d like to go to their house for Lambi Kreole and fresh veggies!
Clairline is excited about the garden as she has never had one before! She does not have higher than a sixth grade education; her parents were unable to pay and she was not allowed back to school. Clairline is growing hot peppers, tomatoes, carrots and eggplant. Please pray for Clairline’s garden and her family, so that both will be prosperous and blessed!
