Noah’s Ark Farmers’ Association Uganda (NAFAU) is a brainchild of Noah’s ark children’s ministry Uganda (NACMU) as an intervention to uplift the lives of rural families especially women and children – who are the most vulnerable using the available occupations.
Noah’s Ark Children Ministry Uganda (NACMU) founded by Piet and Pita Buitendijk as a non-denominational Christian organization originally as a home for abandoned, abused and unwanted children, resolved to support the rural farming communities in Uganda by organizing the famers into groups and helping them to form farmer associations.
NACMU has been in touch with the communities in Kayunga through the child and family protection units (CFPU) of the police and probation office assisting in children abandonment, domestic violence and child abuse cases for many years.
NACMU has embarked on a new school construction project in Kalagala village within their organic farm that will enable children from low income earning families in the community attain quality education.
