The GOD’S CHILD Project supported program, DAYA (Destitute Aged and Young Association), is seeking to raise $4,000 USD for their new garden that will help feed the children at the home as well as employ the women supported by the program. In Phulbani, Odisha, India, the DAYA Children’s Home has a 2 acre patch of land they plan to use for agricultural purposes, raising a variety of vegetables as well as mango, banana and lemon trees. This will also be income generating as they will grow the ingredients for the newly started pickle project that employs poor women of India. To ensure a successful program they need to have a retaining wall installed around the land to keep the street cows and other animals from eating the produce. The estimated cost to construct a wall around the land is $4,000 USD.
