ViacomCBS Veterans Network members supported and attended the Planting Seeds Vision Board Party on January 11, 2021. The event encouraged participants to create a vision board with their goals for the year. Proceeds from the event benefited The Planting Seeds Project, an initiative created by the Omega Phi Beta Foundation. The Planting Seeds Project was created to support grassroots efforts to empower S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) initiatives.
Currently, the project is servicing three initiatives, the first of which is headed by a Marine Veteran, Johan Arenas, in Columbia. Arenas is the owner of Nabguana Farm located in Sevilla, Valle del Cauca, Colombia. Nabguana Farm is an organic superfoods company. Employees of Nabguana Farm are enrolled in an entrepreneurial program which includes learning computer, coffee making, and business skills. In Colombia, farming and entrepreneurship, are male dominated fields. Nabguana Farm launched a free program for women to participate in the entrepreneurial program. The Planting Seeds project will be able to support this free program by donating technical supplies, including computers.
The staff here at ViacomCBS Veterans Network is proud to support the mission of Nabguana Farm. We wish Johan Arenas continued success in his work.
