    It is exciting to be able to learn about a whole new culture in this way. Being able to connect with other students our own age and Skype with the village will help us develop a deeper understanding of our roles as global citizens.Knowing that we could be involved in a plan that could help to eradicate poverty makes us feel like we can make a big change in the world. If the model works in Chilipula then it could work and be adopted in any village on the Sub-saharan continent-WOW!
    Why a Two Wheel Tractor?
    This is taken directly from the Project Cope website:
    A recent epidemic of hoof and mouth disease has destroyed most of the draft animals in many of the villages around Lusaka. Without draft animals, subsistence farmers have to use manual labor to prepare, plant, and harvest their crops of maize. This dramatically limits the amount of land they can cultivate. China pioneered the use of two wheeled tractors to improve agricultural outcomes. These same tractors are now being made available in Zambia. The tractors typically have two cylinder diesel engines which do not require much in the way of maintenance. A local farmer with a two wheeled tractor can prepare his or her own land in a much shorter span of time. This would allow them to then rent out their services to other local farmers. Thus the tractor owner not only improves their own harvest but the harvest of those around them. At the village level, the price for hiring a neighbor’s tractor services can be a portion of the harvest rather than hard cash. The tractors themselves have multiple uses. Besides plowing, the tractors can also be adapted to planting, cultivating, and harvesting. There is a wagon attachment that allows the tractor to pull harvests to the local market. The power takeoff can run water pumps or grain milling devices. A good entrepreneur can turn a two wheeled tractor into a flourishing business which not only helps the entrepreneur but provides a needed service to the village community.

    We created our own art and sent it to Square on Art. They turned our artwork into mugs, key rings, iPad covers and all sorts of great things. We bought a lot of items for holiday gifts and raised $400. It was so easy and fun and the products were really great.

    9 T Shirt Sales
    One of our fifth graders designed a T Shirt for Project Cope. Asking his parents for a loan to buy the Tshirts, he then sold them in school and raised over $100 in T shirt Sales. We advertised them on posters and on Facebook but they weren't selling at first. When we visited every classroom each week and gave out order forms the T shirts went really fast!

    10. Can Recycle Drive February 2014
    This was a much bigger can drive than last time and we held it for over two weeks. Parents and school counselor was a huge help recycling all the cans for us. We raised over $1000 and hope to get more because the principals agreed to wear fancy dress costumes if we raised our goal!
