The Sharing Foundation’s farm project serves the poorest families of Roteang Village. TSF leases land and provides the seeds, fertilizer, tools and supervision to impoverished farmers who grow their own vegetables. Excess crops are sold, providing families with credits that can be exchanged for home improvements, such as a new roof, or for a bicycle.
New Farm Property – 2019
In late 2019, new farmland in Roteang village was leased. The new property is more arable and less prone to seasonal flooding. Early education for poor families is an integral of our farm project, and a new school was built to serve the 138 children now enrolled. Because of Covid-19, no classes are currently in session.
Nancy Kuziemski, a former TSF board member, generously donated the funds for the new school in memory of her mother, Naomi Kuziemski, an accomplished guidance counselor at the Philadelphia High School for Girls. Her expertise and dedication enabled many young women, often from disadvantaged backgrounds, to go onto to college education. We are calling the new building, Naomi’s School, and we hope that many of our young students will be inspired to continue onto higher education.
