We started urban farming of vegetables initially to provide food for our main school, ElShaddai Refugees Learning Centre lunch meals. Furthermore, we sell the idea of organic farming and the related materials (vertical planter drum) to interested parties. We are also involved in small-scale aquaponics in order to farm fishes for our own schools and restaurants.
Due to the farming’s potential, we are now looking into upscaling this project, after a period of testing and refining. In order to create more job opportunities for our marginalized communities, expertise and resources are needed to increase the current produce level. The aim is to look at long term sustainability so that more revenue can be generated.
Help the marginalized and displaced families to rebuild their lives. The effect of the pandemic has been devastating for our whole society, especially to the most vulnerable among us. The families ElShaddai Centre work with are now seeking to rebuild their lives with dignity.
