Sustainable Farming Project

Uganda

Modeled after our Sierra Leone sustainable farming project, which is already yielding food for the orphans we support in Makulon, we are launching another Farming God’s Way project for the children of Mukono, Uganda. We have just purchased 2 acres of farmland so we may help supplement the children’s food needs, as they are currently facing a food crisis. The project of developing the farm will launch immediately. Please continue to check back here for updates!
 
Our goal for the project is two-fold: To help the orphanage provide food for the children, thereby fighting malnutrition, and to teach sustainable farming to the community, which will help local families pull themselves out of poverty. This will reduce the number of future orphans and allow some of the Dove Orphan School children to return to extended family members who can now afford to care for them due to increased levels of self produced income.
 
The farm is currently supplementing meals for over 200 children and 20 teaching staff at the Dove School daily with fresh fruits and vegetables, including peanuts for protein, in order to provide better food security, a healthier more varied diet, and to reduce the need for sponsor funding to purchase food or seek medical care for issues related to malnutrition.
 
For more information, contact April Wareham at aprilw@bloomworldwide.org.
 

 

While the farm is producing enough food to feed the children one meal daily, there is still a need for sponsorship to support the children’s schooling. Please donate below to give these children access to quality education at the Dove school.
