The I AM Family in Uganda focuses on self-sustainable projects. We strive to utilize local resources. We currently have a 3 acre plot of land used for growing crops. We hope to one day purchase more land and expand our agriculture programs.
AGRICULTURE. Various crops and vegetable were grown on the 3 acres of land on our property in Maya. As a result, 60% of the food stuff consumed at the orphanage in 2010 was self-grown.
Three people were employed to undertake the agricultural production and teach our children better methods of crop growing and maintaining soil fertility. Among other methods the children were taught permaculture as the best natural method to maintain soil fertility.
– Buy 12 acres of land for agriculture
– Grow more crops including Vegetables and Maize corn.
– Buy a tractor to help prepare the land faster and be able to make timely preparations for the planting season.
– Startup animal grazing including goat and cattle rearing.
