We are so excited to announce that we are in the beginning stages of our first farm outside of Uganda. We are partnering with Micah 6:8 Sudan to build a farm that will feed and teach orphans in the country of Sudan. Dann Barbakoff, president of Micah 6:8 Sudan has recently returned from a trip to Sudan and confirmed that they are proceeding with their project.
Mr. Barbakoff announced that he met with the Sudanese government about purchasing 10 acres to start the orphanage project. After discussions with local and national government officials, he has very excitedly announced that the government is donating 400 acres of land for this project. We are thrilled and amazed and the blessing this is and the opportunity to help more African children. They are still working on the details of the land but Dann informed us that one potential site is in Bor Town, Jongelai which would be 400 acres along the fertile Nile river.
The other possible site is in the city of Torit. Torit is also a region known for its rich land and agricultural potential. In this area, it is believed that the land is so rich that an assortment of fruits and vegetables can be grown without much need for fertilizers.
Acres 4 Life is so excited about this project in our ongoing purpose of feeding orphans and teaching orphans how to farm for their future. This new project in Sudan will be like all of our current farm projects in Uganda. We will partner with local people and train them how to build the farm, maintain the farm and sustain the farm as a valuable food supply for their local community. This project is another step in our effort to feed orphans in Africa and do our efforts to spread the Love and Hope of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
