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.
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.
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.
