Before I roundup this week's articles, I want to highlight a couple of things on the blog this week. If you've been keeping up, you've probably been reading some of Brooke's stories about how Heifer is working with fair trade banana growers. Though I work at Heifer, it's always fascinating to see the different ways we help people lift themselves out of poverty and hunger. It's also very inspiring.
We also mentioned this week about the flooding and mudslides that wiped out homes, animal shelters and livestock for 121 Heifer-supported families in eastern Uganda this week. We are happy to report that none of our project participants were hurt.
Below are some articles that we passed around the office. If you've checked any of these out or have anything we missed, let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
