    Description

    Building communities capacities, increasing chances for international exchanges and prioritizing communities self-discovered ways of developments are the backbones of true african development. 
    The Farm has a vison of bringing young and adults from all backgrounds together to identify key paths to reducing poverty.
    We have a variety of activities from dairy products such as milk to maize cultivation as well as school gardening. 
    We are also breeding sheep, goats, guinea fowl and pigs. 100% bio, all the livestock are fed on natural elements grown in the farm. 
    The Farm is now aiming at implementing officially in the next couple of months an agricultural vocational training center for rural communities;
    Also enlarging its capacity to accommodate more individuals who are willing to learn the work we do and spend good time. 
    If you have some time to spend, then you are invited to come to GF, we highly appreciate your time and value your presence in our farm.

    In term of building activities, we have just completed a bungalow-dormitory of about 15 rooms comprised of 8 individual bedrooms, 2 sitting rooms, 1 kitchen, 1 meeting room and 4 bathrooms. This will accommodate anyone that wishes to spend quality time in the farm. We are looking for people with a minimum of electrical and building knowledge that will help us do the electrical wiring/connection and painting of the rooms to either the solar panel which already exists or to a power generator. We think in less than 2 weeks the job can be done. We expect the project to commence mi-December 2019.

    En ce qui concerne les activités de construction, nous venons de terminer un bungalow-dortoir d'environ 15 chambres comprenant 8 chambres individuelles, 2 salons, 1 cuisine, 1 salle de réunion et 4 salles de bains. Cela permettra d'accueillir toute personne qui souhaite passer de très agréables moments à la ferme. Nous recherchons donc des volontaires avec un minimum de connaissances en electricité et maçonnerie qui nous aideront à réaliser le câblage électrique à partir du panneau solaire existant ou au générateur et la peinture. Nous pensons qu'en moins de 2 semaines le travail peut être fait. Nous comptons demarrer le projet si possible à la mi-Decembre 2019.
