Project Description

Sustainability is at the core of TLAfrica’s vision for holistic transformation. Dr. Faustin Ntamushobora, in his speech and writings, has always emphasized the need for ministries and churches in Africa to strive to become self-reliant, so that they may enter into partnership with donors, not as beggars, but as parties called to put together resources to fulfil the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus. Sustainability projects have been created to generate income that will be used to develop and run holistic ministries in countries of operation and cater for administrative costs.

OUR PHILOSOPHY OF STEWARDSHIP & SUSTAINABILITY

  • TLAfrica has a holistic approach to every project. We teach Africans how to be self-sustainable in their ministries, for their families, and for their community. As an organization, we we have the same desire and approach for our operations.

  • We know that self-sustainability requires work and time. We have a 4-year strategic plan for how to reach our goals of reducing reliance on financial donors by 40%.

  • God has created Africans with the capacity to become self-reliant and it’s His will to make this possible.

  • We will bring different expertise represented on the Board and staff to create well-informed business plans for each project that are positioned for success. The development and management of the projects initiated will be accomplished through complementing each other, thus benefiting each other as they learn from lessons of teamwork.

  • Sustainability projects will not just bring income to the organization, but also benefit local people where the projects are being developed. This will be done through training opportunities and food provisions, such as the Sabbath Egg distribution once per month.

KENYA PIG PROJECT

  • When complete, 2 piggeries will accommodate up to 20 pregnant sows. Phase 1 holds 5 sows and currently houses 3 with their 15 piglets.

  • Pigs will produce manure to fertilize the corn field, which will assist in feeding the pigs and raise additional income in the markets.

  • Each sow gives birth to an average of 12 piglets per litter.

  • The pigs will be sold, along with excess manure and corn.

  • Will be a source of training for pastors and locals interested in pig farming.

  • Proceeds from sales are projected to cover the overhead costs of the Kenya office once it reaches its full capacity of 20 sows.

Income from the pig farming project will meet the administrative costs for the Kenya office, allowing donor funding to be channelled directly to transformational programs. There is high demand for pork throughout Kenya. Manure from the pigs will be used to organically grow produce for pig feed and additional product to sell, as well as generate bio-gas on the half-acre farm.

Not only will the farm produce an additional food source for the local community, but will also be used for training pastoral leadership graduates and locals in pig farming for anyone interested.

At the moment, the project holds 5 pregnant sows and their piglets, plus surrounding crop fields. It currently has 3 sows with 15 piglets. The plan is to expand the facilities to hold a total of 20 sows and their piglets. The start-up costs total $18,000 with a monthly maintenance fee of $470. The current status of the project with 5 sows will earn a profit to cover 40% of the office’s overhead expenses. It is expected to pay for itself + the overhead expenses of the Kenya office once it reaches its full expansion and capacity of 20 sows.

“Sustainability has a holistic perspective. It’s not just for the staff, their salaries and the administration fees, but it extends into community transformation, which comes through our philosophy of holistic transformation.”

Dr. Faustin Ntamushobora

Rwanda SABBATH EGG PROJECT

There is a market gap for eggs and poultry in Musanze. The poultry project seeks to fill that need and generate income to fund the overhead expenses of our TLAfrica primary office in Musanze, Rwanda. The poultry project shares land with the future Thousand Hills International University and Conference Center. Agriculture is one of the proposed degrees and will use the poultry project as a training program for the students.

There is also a rise in malnutrition for families in the area surrounding the conference center and the Sabbath Egg Project. An “Egg-a-week” program will be implemented to provide an egg for every child in the surrounding neighborhood the first Saturday of each month. Manure will also be used to aid in farming for the project and local farms.

The structure for the chickens can currently hold 700 chickens and already has 400 chickens. The goal is to expand the structure to hold 2,000 chickens. The total start-up cost is $17,811. With 700 chickens on site, the projected monthly income of $615/month. We project that the egg project will be able to pay for itself and cover the Musanze office overhead fees within 2 years after it is fully functioning.
