Art Enns, POGA President and a Red River Valley grain farmer, is donating the proceeds from 35 acres of his oat crop to help support the Manyinga Project, which provides essential training in agriculture, primary education and basic health and nutrition programs for students. The proceeds will go towards supporting two schools in Zambia, where about 430 young Zambians age six to 14 attend.

Art EnnsThe project gives the students a chance to break the cycle of poverty not only through conventional education, but also by including training on farming. Agriculture is an essential educational program as 85 percent of people in Zambia farm. Children without parents are missing out on a key component of upbringing in Zambia. If they lack the skills and knowledge they require to run a successful farm and produce food, then they are at risk to falling into a life of poverty.

The Manitoba Co-operator has written a lovely article outlining the support of Art Enns and the importance of the Manyinga Project.
