Sponsorship is over since he's completed the challenge, BUT It's never too late to donate... see below
This year Roland is supporting "Yogo Farms" in Kenya which is very dear to his heart. The YouFeedThem projects began in this village of Yogo back in 2008. It is incredible how the community has grown since that time. We are still hoping to complete irrigation on one of the plots, and provide other farm implements to help the farm reach it's full potential. Visit our "Yogo" page to learn all about the growth of the community.
