OGT is Full Steam Ahead

OGT’s 2016-17 Fiscal Year (FY) ended yesterday, May 31 and we have some exciting numbers to announce with International Shipments! Orphan Grain Train had 107 international shipments, up from last year of 90 shipments. These are all paid for by contributions from our generous donors. It is truly amazing the increase in shipments and our ability to pay for all of those. FY 2013-14 OGT had 83 shipments, 20 of those were government funded. 2014-15 OGT had 74 shipments, 2 of which were government funded. 2015-16 we had 90 international shipments, all funded by donations and then this year 107. Some of the countries shipped to included Zambia, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Romania, Kenya, Republic of Georgia and Greece which all received 2 shipments each. Others that include more than 2 shipments are Liberia, Kyrgyzstan, Haiti, Philippines, Lithuania, Nicaragua, Panama, Ghana and India. Thank you to our dedicated volunteers and generous donors for making it possible for OGT to ship food and humanitarian aid across seas. We could not change lives worldwide if it wasn’t for YOU!
