Rice Distribution Planning

Hello and Tashi Delek from India

I am writing today to provide the update as to the planned distributions for the coming year.

At this time the February Distribution has been delayed due to the new construction of the Tibetan Organic Outlet which will be located in Mundgod Tibetan Settlement in Camp 3. All Tibetan Organic Officers are working diligently to establish the outlet making available to the Tibetan community and surrounding Indian communities the opportunity to purchase Tibetan Organic Products. Unfortunately, due to the busy schedule and demand on the agricultural officers we are pending the date for the February distribution and look forward to reporting to you soon.

At this time we are scheduling a planned distribution for 20 bags of 25 kg of rice to be delivered monthly for the next 6 months, which will now start in March. Therefore, at this time we are able to commit to approximately 3 tons of rice to be purchased as well as consistent delivery of rice subsistence provided to the families designated as recipients. Obviously with the fluctuation of the dollar and market price of rice this is an estimation based on current donations received.

We would however,  like to generate funding for the remaining 6 months of the year in order to provide a full year of scheduled purchasing from the Tibetan Organic Farmers as well as deliveries to the communities in need. With one entire year of consistency we will be able to provide an effectiveness report with regards to economic development for the farmers and a review of how the food subsistence has assisted the families in need.

The current planning phase is made possible from the donations received over the last several months. Thanks to all of you for your generosity and compassion in considering the needs of others.

If you or anyone you know is interested in making a tax-deductible donation to the Pennies for Partnerships Outreach please see the donate button on the side bar or visit us at our official website for Tibetan Cultural Institute of Arkansas.


Also please share and spread the message of the Pennies for Partnerships project as this is also one way of giving to others by being an advocate for those in need.

AND PLEASE always keep in mind the concept of Pennies for Partnerships –

it only takes a little to give and the generosity of pennies adds up to less hunger in one child’s day. 

A 55 pound bag of rice (25 kg) costs approximately $15.00 (one pound costs approximately $ .28) and this feeds a family of five for one month.

Thank you for your consideration in addressing the very important global issues of poverty and hunger.

Kind regards,

Leann Halsey
