The Situation

There is a food shortage in Nigeria because Fulani herdsmen continue to maraud through the countryside slaying farmers, raping women/girls and kidnapping people. Those kidnapped pay huge sums as ransom. Nigerians flee the country-side and pour into cities where they are less vulnerable.  Many left the country of Nigeria completely.  

The Sisters’ Response

Sisters care for the youth and women in the large Nigerian cities during these dangerous times.   The youth who fled their farms yearn to return to help feed their nation.  Because it remains unsafe to do so, the Sisters are offering their own property to introduce vertical farming.  

This is a new concept to these young farmers.  The first gardens will be along the Sisters’ outer walls where there is plenty of sun.  The youth will be learning and assisting in this new way of farming of raising food for the Nigerian people.  Vertical farming will be a game-changer for all of Nigeria!

“I think that this is going to be convenient for us here on our property given the security challenges presently going on in our country.  I would like to be a part of this no matter how small, I can participate!”
