The Good Grace Farms (7 each) in and around Kacerere Village, Uganda
We manage 7 farms in and around Kacerere Village, Uganda.
We have 6 farms locally within Kacerere and a 20 acre farm on the outskirts of Kacerere.
The crops we grow on these farms help feed the students at the two schools we have in Kacerere, and excess crops are sold to the general public to offset the cost of maintenance costs, and to cover teacher’s wages at our schools, for future projects, and for improvements to the farms themselves.
The crops include: maize, beans, cabbage, rice, potatoes, and tomatoes.
We very much understand the importance of tradition. That being said – we are looking to bring in some modern farming ideas to this project – specifically crop rotation, companion planting, irrigation and composting.
So They Can Thrive is a non-profit that was first established in 2011 by Angie Hungerford as First Foundation Inc.
When asked why she felt compelled to launch a non- profit Angie paused, and got a very thoughtful look on her face and said – “Because I understand suffering.”
Angie’s journey has included her own share of suffering and those travails shaped her heart and led her to a place where she could not overlook the misery of others and since 2011 she been serving others, and helping to see that their basic needs are are met so they can thrive.
