Learn More About The Mission Of The Farm
We are working hard to help support 1,400 children at the Needs Care School in Lusaka Zambia. We do that through the 3 Esthers Farm. It’s a beautiful 10 acre property just 25 minutes from the school and it’s fully dedicated to producing food for the school. Maybe one day, after the 1,400 children are receiving a daily lunch of healthy food – we can expand to support additional schools.
About The 3 Esthers Farm: As we began working on the farm in the fall of 2015 we settled on the name, The 3 Esthers Farm. The 3 Esthers? There was Esther MKandawire in Ngombe; Esther Derr, the Zambian daughter of David and Martha the owners of the farm land; and the third Esther in reference to the scripture verse found in Esther 4:14:
“And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this.”
How it started: In October 2015 we created a Crowd Funding project to raise money to launch the farm. Our goal was $10,000. By December, we had our funding. Esther had planned a budget that would allow us to build a caretaker’s house, fence the property, drill a well, and begin setting up crops and animal projects. The 3 Esthers Farm was off to a great start. The farm is 100% dedicated to feeding the hungry children of the Needs Care School. As it grows and prospers, so will they.
Farm Fresh Produce For Hungry Children: Why is the food needed so urgently? Many of the children are HIV Positive and without good nutrition the children won’t be able to battle HIV/AIDS effectively. The reason is simple – they cannot take the Anti-retroviral medications they need on an empty stomach, it’s too hard on their system. This is why the farm, and farm fresh produce, is so vitally important. It will literally extend children’s lives and give them a shot at growing up healthy and well educated.
