We are currently running a supplementary feeding programme for the orphans and vulnerable children.
Additionally we have our own food production system on site to feed the children using traditional methods.
We have 10 hectares of land close to a river and 4 hectares close to the adjacent school (1200 primary-school students + 600 secondary-school students).
Demand for our services is getting high because of the economic hardships being faced in the country.
Currently we have 66 children on our feeding scheme but we only managed to feed 30.
We have come to the conclusion that sustainable farming is the backbone of our project.
Therefore we strive for a holistic eco-village-concept following Permaculture Principles.
A food-forest will also be part of the project.
➥ Why Permaculture?
We are more than happy to announce that we are going to collaborate with Steve Cran!
Together with him we will build a permaculture field school.
This will later morph into an academy as we generate interest and food, to teach students and teachers.
➥ Sustainable Farming & Food Security
Because we are a non-profit charity organisation,
our work, the further development and success of the project solely relies on financial support from the outside.
In order to support the work, aims and visions of the Mangwende Orphan Care Trust please consider a donation.
We highly appreciate and are more than grateful for your support!
Your support will:

contribute greatly to the development and success of the project
improve the life of orphans and vulnerable children, as well as of many other people
