A NEW IDEA IS STARTING NOW
RABBITS, GOATS, CHICKENS, COWS
TO HAVE A UPENDO FARM WOULD BE NEAT
FOR OUR OWN EGGS, CHEESE AND MEAT.
The FARM Project, which we call ‘4K’ because cows, rabbits, goats and chickens all start with a k in Polish language, has as its primary goal to help complete the already pending construction of an animal pen at UPENDO Children’s Home in Kenya along with the purchase of the necessary equipment and of the first animals.
The target is to have at least 2 cows, 50 rabbits, 50 chicken and a couple of goats at UPENDO. In this way we will be able to provide 40 CHILDREN with milk, eggs and poultry.
One good milk cow costs about 1000 euros.
One mother goat costs approximately 150–200 euros, and 70 for a billy.
One rabbit costs approximately 10 euros.
One chicken costs approximately 8 euros.
WE’RE ALSO ASKING FOR SOME CASH
FOR CAGES SO OUR ANIMALS DON’T DASH
Another thing we would like to have at the farm is a large kitchen garden growing local vegetables. And we hope to plant more trees and fruit bushes.

A GOOD AND HEALTHY DIET MEANS
PAPAYA, MANGO, LOTS OF FRUIT,
SO OUR KIDS GROW UP BIG, STRONG AND CUTE!
UPENDO is located in an area where temperatures are quite high for most of the year. The weather is usually dry and windy. The soil is not as fertile under the neighbouring farmsteads as in other areas. The neighbours try to eke out a living as hired labourers, and on their farms they grow mostly maize and beans.
UPENDO has a garden and a small crop field. We long for it to start yielding harvests already, so that the children can not only learn to farm but also enrich their diet with fruit and vegetables picked from their own garden.
For these goals to be met, we will need to implement a drip irrigation system for plant farming, so as to keep water consumption to a minimum. It is worth noting at UPENDO we promote ecological methods of farming.
DRIP IRRIGATION CAN HELP US OUT
WITH DRY SPELLS, CAUSING DROUGHT
HELP US NOW, NOT IN A WHILE,
SUPPORT OUR PROJECT AND GIFT A SMILE
P.S. We will also use funds from the collection to buy food for poor families and lonely people from Murang’a Diocese. The extent of the help we can provide will depend on your generosity.
