About us ...
The Kibera Farm Project is an initiative of School Farms Africa, a Christian, non-denominational Charity (LBG) incorporated in Guernsey, British Channel Islands. It was established in July 2013 and is recognised as a charity for tax purposes by the States of Guernsey Tax Authority.
The Project aims to support Kibera Free Methodist Academy, Nairobi, by:
1) Developing a farm for the benefit of its students;
2) Developing a health-care support programme for the Academy;
3) Offering training opportunities in land management;
4) Assisting with developing the Academy physical infrastructure
A Kenyan Company (School Farms Kenya, LBG) has been incorporated to comply with Kenyan Land Ownership Law and to oversee the local initiative.
Most people in Kibera exist on less than one pound a day. Children at the Academy receive small portions of maize porridge or beans when funds permit and occasionally a portion of fruit.
We would like to ensure that these children are adequately fed, have access to medical help and a good education.
Where we work
'Our' school is in the heart of Africa's largest slum, Kibera on the outskirts of Nairobi, just 89 miles (143 km) south of the equator. Our farm, whose primary purpose is to help feed the children and their families, is about 25 miles (40 km) South West of Nairobi in a small settlement called Embolei which is just a few miles from the nearest town, Kiserian.
Nairobi has a subtropical highland climate. At 1,795 metres (5,889 ft) above sea level, evenings can be cool, especially in the June/July, when the temperature can drop to 9 °C (48 °F). The sunniest and warmest part of the year is from December to March, when temperatures average the mid-twenties during the day. The mean maximum temperature for this period is 24 °C (75 °F). There are two rainy seasons; the long rains in March - May and the short rains Nov.- Dec
