Organic Farm Project
Location: Moshi, Tanzania
Rockflower partnered with The Children of Destiny Foundation to explore opportunities for income generation through the provision of land for organic farming. Not only will this provide food for the children but will involve other women in the community to participate in an income generating farming program, through which the whole community can participate.
Having their own land will alleviate the pressure of finding funding to cover rent and allow them to fully focus on the vision of increasing sustainability.
“Our vision is to use the land to grow enough food to feed our big family and also for commercial crops," say Margaret Mponda, Founder of Children of Destiny."
The Foundation plans to grow trees and crops on the new land to feed the children as well as sell the produce. The foundation currently maintains livestock, including cows, pigs, chickens and goats as well as fish pond. The difference, Margaret feels, will be the ability to grow over time in the security of knowing they own the land.
