The Brighter Brains Institute (BBI) is making a call for fundraising through GoFundMe. This particular initiative can use a boost. What is it? The Nyakiyumbu Widows Association is hoping to raise money for a Peanut Farm in order to provide tuition money for orphans and teachers’ salaries.

The GoFundMe can be seen here:

Nyakiyumbu is farming village close to the border of the Congo and has a huge number of widows and orphans because of rebel militias, M23 and the ADF.

There are many deaths to AIDS, hepatitis, and Malaria. Also, the community is comprised of many hunters, who are killed for poaching in the close by Queen Elizabeth Park.

The Bakonzo tribe of Nyakiyumbu has a traditional dish there, peanut sauce. The profits from the Peanut Farm will help with the Nyakiyumbu Widows Orphanage Humanist School.

Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated to a humanist community, and a community generally, in need.
