Land for Teachers

Proceeds from this sustainable business will benefit teachers in Kisoro
Quality teachers are a school’s greatest resource! The teachers at the five schools we support earn very low pay compared to local private and government school teachers. They work at these schools because they want to help the very poor and because they want to reach the children and their families for Christ. Most see their job as a ministry. But often, these teachers make the hard decision to work at other schools just to make ends meet for their own families.
To retain quality teachers, school leaders have begun praying for farmland! The volcanic soil in Kisoro is very rich and can be cultivated to produce three crops per year. These crops can include potatoes, beans or sorghum. All profits from this sustainable business will be used to supplement teachers’ salaries!
This project includes startup funds for ¼ acre of farmland, and the labor and materials needed to produce the first crop. With this ¼ acre, school leaders will operate the business, refine their approach, and report on their profitability. Once these lessons are learned, we plan to raise additional funds for more farmland for the schools!
This model program will start with one quarter acre of land.
