Uganda obtained its independence from Britain in 1962. Unfortunately the last few decades have been very difficult on this young nation. Droughts have plagued the country side and armed rebellions have wrecked havoc on the nations infrastructure. The orphanage needs to feed more than 200 children and its staff. In order to accomplish this overwhelming task Sylvia’s Children has developed agricultural facilities. We built a pig farm and six chicken coops that house more than 4,000 chickens. We also have our own corn mill.
