Project Canaan (A Place of HOPE)

Project Canaan is a 2,500 acre large-scale land development project being designed to come alongside Africans and bring expertise, resources and heart together to find a holistic solution to a complex set of issues. It will provide training and employment, grow large amounts of food to stimulate the local economy and allow for export while supporting orphans and vulnerable children on the property and across the nation.

Project Canaan Farm (PCF) has multiple approaches to agriculture utilizing both outdoor and greenhouse crop production, dairy farming, the raising of chickens and goats, and the production of fruit wherever possible on the land.  The proceeds from farming will be used to help Project Canaan be a sustainable community, as well as help support the children and churches across the country that Heart for Africa has partnered with.

The Project Canaan Children (PCC) program provides a safe haven for orphans and vulnerable children.  Children's homes and schools have been and will continue to be built to provide for the ever-growing number of orphans being left in the wake of the AIDS pandemic.  This will provide them a chance to live and grow as well as be educated to help break the cycle of ignorance and poverty in their generation.

As of January 2015, we have 88 abandoned/orphaned children living at Project Canaan and we employ 220+ people from the surrounding community.  Each Swazi employed is responsible for feeding an average of 13 people at home, meaning actually 2,860 people directly benefit from Project Canaan.

We receive a new baby on average every 12 days.  If this trend continues we will have 260 children living on Project Canaan by the year 2020, so we must plan for housing, education, staffing and food production with these numbers in mind.
