About organization

We have a common goal to create a better future for those coming behind us (our children) the project works towards creating an all time common solution giving home to the orphans providing simple sustainable regenerative food to all communities including schools, communities and orphanages by starting reliable farms for them. Our vision is creating a self reliable community in the future.

Impacts
