Community Development at Her Farm


Her Farm iwas built to provide poor, landless and homeless women and their children a sustainable home and livelihood. It's much more than that however. Her Farm is grass-roots community development that impacts the entire rural village where the farm is located. Here's a partial list of what goes on daily at Her Farm.

1) Safe home for women and children. Some women have left abuse to seek refuge and new life here. Some women are younger and seek an education, employment and to avoid being forced into arranged marriage by families. 

2) Education for village children and youth in English, computers and agriculture. (see also our program for teaching at the school at Her Farm. If you want to live here and teach, as opposed to paint, milk the cow and so forth, choose that program)

3) A demonstration farm where new farming ideas can be tested for the community to consider.

4) The cultural hub of the community where people gather to learn, to share ideas and sometimes just to dance. 

Her Farm touches every aspect of life in this village.
