Hope Farm

With an initial US$10,000 donation in December 2003 from Jayesh Tailor, Zambia Hope purchased a farm near Lusaka that is used to raise food for AIDS orphans and to teach agriculture to students at the three schools we support (Mutakwa, Barlaston Park and Hope). After a successful first harvest, Jay donated another US$10,000. Other supporters from Britain introduced by Jay donated an additional US$15,000, which went to drilling a well and construction of a chicken run with a capacity of 10,000 chickens a month. The farm has grown from 10 acres to 120 acres, and is successful.

Pig Farm, Dairy Farm and Sausage Factory
As part of our efforts to provide nutritional food to the 2,500 AIDS orphans through the Misisi compound, we are building a 10-sow piggery. We also plan to purchase five cows to provide milk to the orphans.

A sausage factory will be a source of food, as well as income to support the education of the orphans. We plan for our farm to both feed the children and finance their education.
