Apart from its regular spirituality programs, Mwangaza
is also engaged in sustainable farming. The Centre produces its vegetables and
fruits for most of the year. The farming done at Mwangaza is using manure from
farm animals and compost. Organic chicken farming is also part of the project
and this provides manure, eggs, and meat for the Centre. And beekeeping is another
component of Mwangaza’s ecological projects. All in all, the farm also offers a
healthy ecosystem that helps people pray with nature.
The Centre, together with its Jesuit community, has
turned to the use of solar power in the past few years. This solar project is
aimed at reducing the cost of electricity for the centre. Since solar energy
produces zero-emission electricity, the project is helping reduce the amount of
carbon in the atmosphere.
With all the above
initiatives, we, at Mwangaza, look to the future with the hope that we can keep
the ecological fire burning and go further still.
