Providing income generation through self-sustainable farming
Currently, a majority of IGF services are funded by ongoing donations through international child sponsorship. Our dream is to ensure the project becomes self-sustainable, where we empower the local community to provide these services for the children directly. This not only eliminates dependance on others, but restores dignity and freedom to the community.
Therefore we are establishing a farm to produce income in order to help fund the services for the children in need. 300 acres of land have been purchased, thanks to our generous donors, along with the necessary machinery to farm at this scale. A water bore for the farm has also been provided, so we are ready to commence large scale maize farming as soon as we raise enough funds to purchase the first crop.
