Tiburon community leaders met with Zach, Paige and me yesterday in one of the classrooms of our school there. Needs were discussed and possible solutions presented. We're working on a grant to fund disaster risk reduction. Every major storm that passes our way has a terrible impact on the major sources of income for this region---jobs are lost; equipment destroyed; crops are washed away. The people of Tiburon know what needs to be done but have no resources available to them. This grant would be a step in the right direction towards a more sustainable economic future. Keep us in your prayers.
