Income Generation

One critical challenge that faces children in Busia is a lack of opportunities to apply their education in the community, which often means the cycle of poverty is not broken simply by providing a child with education. For this reason, GHM is committed to teaching our students and their families the skills necessary to provide for themselves sustainably. We currently have an income generating project of poultry on campus that started in February 2016 with 1000 chicks. We are teaching children and their families how to manage this project. We have also set aside 5 acres of GHM land and are planning to train families on sustainable farming techniques to increase the stability of their food and income streams.
