Heat or hope, what do you see?

Enactus students from the United States saw a way to cultivate hope for disabled veterans by hiring them to help work a pepper farm. A seasoning is derived from the peppers and then sold to fund the farm’s operations. In addition to employment, the veterans find a source of therapy in nurturing their plants. How much more do veterans earn per week? Find out at:  http://enactus.org/seeopportunity/project-gallery/project/datil-peppers/.
