Operation Bra Drop: Ghana!

Marilyn - with the Yakote Women Farmers Project - just picked up 4 giant bags of bras to take with her to Ghana, Africa in November! This picture shows some of the women farmers who benefit from this project and who will be receiving bras from Operation Bra Drop! Thank you Marilyn!

Read more about this amazing project...

The Yakote Women Farmers Association is made up of approximately 150 women who live in and near the village of Yakote in the far northeastern corner of Ghana. It was formed in 2000 with the U.S. nonprofit formed in 2006 with the goal of supporting rural village economic development through grants and micro loans to improve agricultural productivity, business training, family health and nutrition, increased educational opportunities, and improved sanitation facilities. This is accomplished through empowerment of women who wish to operate small, agricultural-based businesses, which in turn provides extra income to support their families.

Here's a link to their website and more pictures...
