The Full Belly Project is in Chipata, Zambia distributing 105 Universal Nut Shellers (UNS).
Our volunteer, Randy, arrived in early April and has been working with local farmers in Chipata (CDFA) to help build and distribute Universal Net Shellers to the community. The UNS creates a safer peanut less likely to be contaminated by toxins and can shell peanuts 50 times faster than human hands. By bringing the UNS to Zambia, we are helping the local community feed themselves in a sustainable way.
Right now, we have only raised $3,745 of our total goal $30,000. Each nut sheller costs $286- we have currently only raised enough for 13 Universal Nut Shellers! As May 15th quickly approaches, we need your help now more than ever to reach our goal and to better the lives of the Chipata community.
Full Bell is a small nonprofit organization founded by CNN Hero and Purpose Prize winner Jock Brandis, located in Wilmington, North Carolina with only three staff members. Due to our size, this project in Zambia can only be made possible through volunteers and donations. Over half of the population in Zambia lives below poverty lines, and with your help, we can help improves the lives of the people in Zambia.
Your donation will help the Fully Belly Project feed and empower the people of Zambia, and allow Full Belly to continue providing resources for people to feed themselves around the world!
