Michael continues working with women help them out of poverty in Uganda.
To continue the project of giving coffee seedlings to widows, so they can earn money to pay their children’s school fees.
Michael, a SIFAT graduate who is now bishop of 24 churches, started a nursery to grow coffee seedlings that will help very poor farmers get a small coffee orchard started on their farms. This means that they can have income to buy the uniforms and pay tuition for their children to attend school.
This project has given these farmers hope, because they have a chance to work to pull themselves out of hunger and poverty. Michael and his church members have raised and delivered 15,000 seedlings to 300 farmers, which are growing well. The needy families who received the plants are working hard to take care of them and expect their first crop in 18 months. Now Michael’s church has planted more seedlings for the 200 more impoverished widows and farmers in their area. The people who had been desperate in Michael’s churches are praising God and filled with hope.
