PROVIDENCE FARMS

In the summer of 2016, SASCU Staff, students and missionaries and local workers teamed up to begin developing land that was graciously given to them.  They named is Providence Farm, meaning “God will provide”. Through generous donations the team built a large goat shelter, a rabbit shelter house with hutches and cleared land to plant eucalyptus trees, various vegetables and maize. Most importantly, they built a well that provides fresh water to Providence Farm and surrounding families. All projects are moving toward the goal of future sustainability.

THE PROJECTS

SASCU/Providence Farm was given 18 adult goats to start their herd; and many are now giving birth! SASCU was also given a donation of 20 large breeding rabbits. In addition, SASCU is planting eucalyptus, vegetables and maize.  As donations are given, SASCU will contine to add more goats, chickens, crops, eucalyptus trees, and maintain the farm.

SUSTAINABILITY

SASCU/Providence Farm’s goal towards sustainability is through the development and growth of the farm land; breeding of animals; and donations and sponsorships to provide for the on-going needs of the SASCU orphans and other vulnerable children.

CLICK TO DONATE

Thank you for partnering with Good Earth through your purchases, donations and prayers to help us share the love of God with orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda.

Here is the 2018 update of the Good Earth team’s third summer trip to Uganda.  During this trip, we were able to spend time at the orphanage and school, connecting with and loving on the orphans, while playing games, singing songs, doing crafts and building relationships.  We joined SASCU staff in their weekly outreach of visiting and serving food in two slum areas, and shared the Jesus film with SASCU and their surrounding community (in their native language, Lugandan).  These orphans are intelligent, joyful young people, full of hope and faith, destined to make an impact on their community.

Through generous donations, we purchased medical supplies and medicines, several mattresses, much needed cups and bowls, and farm supplies.  We took 14 trunks full of items donated by Good Earth customers and Christ Community Church.  The orphans and workers were so thrilled to be given new shoes, socks, under garments, clothes, sports balls, toys, candy, school supplies, yarn, sheets and so much more.  They loved it!

Our team spent the other half of our time at SASCU’s Providence Farm, clearing 5 acres for crops and a large goat pen, weeding and hoeing 2 acres for planting beans, putting in more poles for future irrigation, worming 93 goats, planting beans, harvesting maize, and sweet potatoes.  The house is now complete with solar lighting and doors on each room.  We watched as a new building was being constructed for a girls dorm.  The bore well continues to provide clear drinking water for the farm and surrounding village.

We are humbled and blessed to be a part of this journey and so thankful for your continued support and prayers, on behalf of SASCU.

God is so good!
