The Foundation has supported the setup of a community farm since 2016, just outside the gate of the Kafue National Park in Zambia. The land has been provided by the local Chiefteness, and the Foundation has sponsored the seeds, a solar powered irrigation system, tools and the training of > 10 women from the local community in farming. It now produces most of the vegetables for Ila Safari Lodge and other organizations within the National Park. Hence decreasing the transport cost of getting vegetables from town, and creating sustainable new jobs.
In 2020 the farm has been expanded with a chicken breeding project. The aim is that the farm will be completely self-sustaining within two years by also selling its own products on the market.
