S tarlight Family Charity has 2 1/2 acres of land outside Nasuuna village, Buzibwera parish, Kiboga, Uganda and an organic garden surrounding the school and orphanage. The land produces food crops to help us make sure the children at the school and orphanage receive a nourishing meal. It also provides a base from which to teach children and adults how to grow a range of crops and maximise their yield in harmony with the environment. To make the best use of the land we are seeking funding to employ a farm manager, to fund a larger water reservoir and to build a simple building to store tools and facilitate educational workshops. We also kindly welcome donations of seeds such water melon, pumpkins, cabbage, tomatoes, green peppers, maize, beans, eggplants and ground nuts to help us keep the farm productive.
