SINGLE GRAIN PROGRAM
A single grain of rice can tip the scale; one man may be the difference between victory and defeat. - Emperor of China
We are from SE Ventures 01357, Inc. and we are happy to tell you that we have created a company helping local farmers in the Northern Provinces of the Philippines with the areas in Pangasinan, Ilocos, La Union, Zambales and Nueva Ecija as its main beneficiaries.
In general, we provide links to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to make available the necessary capital to farmers so they could farm crops and/or rear farm animals in exchange for some profits to be shared by both the OFWs and the farmers. SE Ventures 01357, Inc. manages this program.
However, there are still many farmers who are interested to join our program but do not really own land but rather use their farming skills and are paid hourly to farm for their landlords. Hence, to make ends meet, many resort to building small makeshift animal shelters to rear animals right at their backyards but because of lack of funds, their animal shelters are not up to the required standards (see images).
In this regard, I am personally writing this letter to you to seek a minimal financial donation (we only need at least US$100 as one-time support for a single farmer) to enable them to build their animal shelters in order to join our program. Solicitation is one-time and will terminate till such time that we are able to provide assistance to at least 50 farmers.
Whatever excess amount that we will be able to collect will also be utilized to build water wells and provide water pumps for farmers who live in the mountainous areas to help them establish water sources in support for raising their animals and the like.
We implement this project with a two-fold aim:
To assist and help poor farmers to joining our program in order to create a sustainable livelihood for them and alleviate their current living conditions which will eventually help support their children’s schooling. We, at SE Ventures 01357, Inc. believe that education should be the basic right of every child, and through this endeavor, we are making education as a basic right possible.
To provide investment options for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and to link them to those farmers so they can provide the funds after we, together with your support, are able to help the farmers build their animal shelters.
With your donations and other forms of assistance that we will be receiving from various sources, we can guarantee to help at least 50 more farmers and their families in the region.
We thank you for your kind attention and we look
forward for your immediate and generous response.
