First of many harvests

Rafiki Farm

The Rafiki Farm is golden brown with this past season’s crop of Safflower Cartamo. The drought resistant plant yields over 70% oil which is used for cooking. It will be sold to partially cover operating expenses of Rafiki Child Care Home and also for reinvestment in next years crop. Since this year went so well, we are considering leasing additional acreage to even further boost the profits from this income generating activity. We are working towards sustainability, which is truly the ideal end goal for any organization or individual.
