Orphans And Widows

Shalom Community Development Projects …. building futures … empowering a community

No one person can change the world, but you can change the world for one person …. George Hoffman

Shalom Children’s Home and Sustainability Farm was established on the property to provide a place where orphans and widows could live together and grow food.

The first stage of the development was opened in June 2009 and can accommodate up to to 30 boys, their carers and some widows.  The second stage, Shammah House a Rescue Centre for girls and widows, was opened in June 2014 and can accomodate up to 20 girls, plus their carers and some widows.

The children living on the property attend local schools and are given tutoring assistance plus training in good hygiene, basic life skills and farming activities.  Access to good nutrition, medical care, safe drinking and proper sanitation are also provided.
