Fresh cow-milk for orphans

Bulembu Dairy farm

Bulembu is a former minetown in Northwest Swaziland. The town has been bought by the the organization of the same name. Bulembu Ministries is a locally acknowledged Swazi christian NGO that is directed by a Swazi.
The aim of the organization is to give Swazi orphans who find nobody to take care for them a secure and loving home. Here, traumatized children can develop a new sense in their young lives and get guidance how to live up to their own dreams.
sahee supports bulembu to convert the former Golf course into a dairy pasture. The Clubhouse will become the dairy parlour. Jersey cows will be giving milk that is primarily used for the children living in Bulembu. Ultimately, once the herd has become bigger, the milk will be sold in Swaziland and nearby South Africa in order to generate income. With other income-generating activities this will make the whole town self-sustainable adn guarantees orphans to have a bright future again.
