This year, our team at People Management Group has decided that we would donate on behalf of our clients to Heart for Africa.
Heart for Africa (Canada) is a humanitarian organization that focuses on bringing HOPE to the Kingdom of Eswatini, Africa in the areas of Hunger, Orphans, Poverty and Education. In March 2012, Project Canaan was opened. This 2,500 acre farm provides a home to the 257 orphans under the age of 9 that are in the care of Heart for Africa organization. They also provide care for their orphan children until they complete their high school education. Since opening, Project Canaan has grown to provide training and employment programs to local men and women in the community; there are 300 local adults who work with or for Project Canaan.
Project Canaan Cows opened in December 2013 with 2 dairy cows. Currently, the farm has a herd of 125 cattle, 83 cows and 42 heifers. Of the 83 cows, 48 are milked and 35 are dry cows. On a monthly basis, the children aged 2-9 years old drink 18,000 litres and the babies aged 0-23 months drink 5,400 L.
