Forming Leaders for Rural Transformation and Integral Ecology in Uganda

SOUTH BEND, IN   |  http://bethanylandinstitute.org

Mission

BLI was born in response to three challenges: food insecurity, ecological degradation and poverty in the rural communities of Uganda. Our mission is to form leaders who will serve as catalysts for rural transformation through an integrated education program in sustainable land care, economic empowerment and environmental leadership. Bethany Land Institute represents a new model: an integrated approach to fight poverty, restore dignity and care for creation. Our goal is to inspire similar models that can revitalize rural livelihoods in Uganda.

Mary's Farm

Mary’s Farm is a demonstration and teaching farm.
At the heart of the farm is a yearly a cohort of Bethany Caretakers: a group of Ugandans from rural areas who commit to a two year residential program learning small-scale, integrated and sustainable farming practices. Caretakers also learn the business side of farming including: start-up loans, financing for seeds/equipment, and how to utilize markets. They will emerge with the necessary skills to be leaders in their communities. Our target for Caretakers consists of 50% women, 50% men. As they start their farms upon graduation, each graduate is expected to mentor two people in the community in the ways to care for their land.
