MERCY CARE FARM
Mercy Care Farm is a branch of Mercy Care Malawi ministries, which is an affiliate of Urban Promise International. The farming project will start in July 2024. The farm will be located in Ntchisi district (central region of Malawi) where the second high school campus of Mercy Care High School is located.
Mercy Care Farm, is a project which seeks to alleviate the challenges faced in the provision of food to the after school children and high school students. This project will involve cultivation of crops (Maize, beans and vegetables) and rearing of livestock on the farm. The goal is to avoid disruption in the food supply chain to our programs at the ministry and reduce the operations costs of our programs.
In addition to being a food basket, the farm will also act as a learning ground for students and the alumni from our high school, where they will learn agricultural skills which are very important in an agrarian economy.
