Projects of Mama Makeka House of Hope
Current Major Projects
MMH Hope has made the decision to move the its base of operations from Fresno, California, to Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, as soon as the Mazala Conference Center and Guesthouse is operational.
The Executive Director is developing a Congo-based team to manage the development of MMH Hope ministries in the DR Congo which will be focused on the following main priorities.
Mazala Conference Center and Guesthouse is a 10,000 plus square feet structure in Kinshasa, the capital city of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It is designed to be a self-supporting base for coordination of Mama Makeka House of Hope’s activities in the DRC. It will provide leverage for local resource development and will be a source of income to support Congo-based initiatives. More.
Mama Makeka House of Hope is developing the 30 hectare (74 acre) farm in Kingakati on the Bateke Plateau, a short distance outside of Kinshasa. With limited resources, the focus has been on planting acacia, eucalyptus, avocado, mango, and palm trees on this open land. The next stages include developing a nursery to grow local seedlings and test new seeds, a small canning unit, planting additional trees, an artificial pond for fish farming, and housing and transport for staff, volunteers, and visitors. The farm, when fully developed, is designed to provide income and produce in support of the work of MMH Hope in Congo, while also providing employment for Congolese farm workers. More.
MMH Hope is working to build an African style of peacebuilding in the DRC.
The long-term vision for this program is to provide continuous space for promoting, developing and covenanting towards both individual and community cultures of peace under the theme of “Never Again Will Never Be Enough!”
The vision is to be implemented with two main strategies:
- Developing a Coordination Team under the Mazala Center using electronic systems for follow up and continuous education, monitoring, networking, and continuous reporting.
- Coming to the Chota and Under Mulombe Tree
MMH Hope is focusing its rural development work on one health zone in order to create a development model which other health zones may duplicate.
The initial work will involve mapping the Kajiji Health Zone which which will show all the villages, churches, schools, health centers, hospital, roads, rivers, bridges, etc. in the area.
Kajiji is a small village and once thriving mission station. From the 1950’s through 1980’s, Kajiji played a key role in education and health care in the region. Now recovering from many years of dictatorship and civil war, Kajiji can be a model of health zone development for the DRC. More.
