This Christmas, girl power can rebuild a broken community– but we need your help. All it takes is PEANUTS.
While a packet of peanuts may seem worthless, for families released from the war camps less than 1 month ago in Northern Sri Lanka, peanuts could literally be the beginning of a new life. This year buy a Christmas gift that will literally change a life and transform a community. All it takes is peanuts www.peanuts.org.au

Three years after the end of the brutal and devastating war in Sri Lanka, families are only now returning back to their homes. But they are returning with nothing but the clothes on their back.
Palmera has committed to providing 150 families with peanut and cowpea grains, and assistance to farm the land – all before Christmas. Palmera will support ploughing of the land and fencing so that farming can begin.
The project is that simple. With just a packet of peanut grains and a lending hand, these families can earn an income of around 30,000 Rs (about AUS$200) this season.
Look at what a packet of peanuts can do:
– Provides immediate relief to 150 families by enabling farming of peanuts and cowpeas for an income
– With this income, these families can access food, shelter and clean water
– The grains selected do not require much water so farmers can grow crops regardless of access to water (rain water is sufficient)
– A regular income will also assist these families to gain confidence, become self-sufficient and slowly develop an economy for this new community
For gifts a specially designed e-card will be distributed on the donor’s behalf to the recipient.
With Palmera, your tax deductible investments go a long way. We spend less than 1% of our funds on administration.
