Mama Makeka Farm in Kingakati

Mama Makeka Farm in Kingakati

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.

Welcome

Mama Makeka House of Hope (MMH Hope) will turn 18 on June 18, 2021. At that age among the Chokwe people that I am from in the DR Congo, boys turn into adults. The ultimate sign of turning into adulthood is when the one who was once living in his parent’s home is able to build his own.
