Hello, my name is Rodney Ashby. My wife and I have worked for 38 years in Small Business and Agriculture Development. We have worked in four different countries to date. We are currently working in Cote d' Ivoire (the Ivory Coast) in Africa. We have been working here for two years and have established many wonderful contacts in local government and many cities and farming communities throughout the country.

We work with all small farmers with an emphasis on “Women Farmers”. Our goal is to teach them ways to increase their quality and production and then help to provide a way and facility for them to process and package their product followed by a way and means to market it. We have had great successes, but there is so much more that we can do.

Our success has inspired invitations from four neighboring countries; Liberia, Mali, Ghana and Toto. Our main goal is to "Build Self Reliance Through Individual and Community Development". We also provide courses in Literacy, Education and Small Business Development to those we work with.

Your contribution will be used to build processing facilities, giving our farmers a place to add value to their product. This also provides employment for many locals and not only an increase of profitability, but also a great increase in self-esteem.

We currently have five facilities waiting to be built. They will be used for tomatoes, cassava, rice and cashews. These facilities will be self-sustaining, creating a strong, on-going business that will bless the community for many years to come. We hope to have sufficient capital to start construction on these facilities in December 2017. When these are built and operating we will move on to another ten facilities. We have only just begun.

Thank you very much for your attention. I personally guarantee that your donation we put to good use. Please visit our web site at ideaglobal.net . We plan to soon link a blog to this site showing our progress.

Sincerely, Rodney Ashby
