With support from OMEX, a Manitoba producer is making a big difference in the lives of children in Africa.

Art Enns, a producer in Manitoba, is donating the revenue from his 40 acre canola crop to the Manyinga Project, which operates two schools for orphaned children in the Manyinga region of Africa. The schools teach local children the state curriculum, as well as how to grow field crops, fruits, vegetables and raise goats.

Enns has been donating revenue from his crop to the project for the last three years. While OMEX has supported the project for many years, this is the first time they’ve worked on a fundraising initiative of this size. The team at OMEX provided Enns with High Performance Plant Nutrition products to help his crop grow and flourish to the best of its ability.
