Program 1

Self Sustainability Project

We have launched a self sustainability project for our orphanage. The goal is to bring Kids Home to the point where by they don't depend on donors but thriving and self supporting. Biointensive is the best option that we are interested in. It's also our vision to train the children and replicate this model in the community we serve. The produce harvested will be a source of food, income and will also be given to the families who are taking care of the orphans and vulnerable children within the communities.
