Every now and again, we have a need which becomes our top priority in order that we can carry on our work, or to support emergency needs in our projects. Every single penny donated is used for this purpose which enables us to achieve the outcomes in a quick and timely manner.
Mill grinding machine and weighing scales for the Micro Farm.
Purpose:Currently there is no mill close by and so people have to travel to the next village which costs money. Unfortunately these people’s lives depend solely on the production from the mill and they have no spare cash to afford the transportation. Our project leader sometimes has to drive people in his car to ensure their basic needs are met which is not always possible. There are a lot of people who will come to use our mill because of this reason.
Outcome: People will come all the time, knowing that the mill is so close to them. We will acquire around 3.000 – 5.000 kg of grain per year which will be enough to feed all the animals on the farm and will afford to pay the electricity bills and enable us to provide work for a Miller. The mill will work 3-4 days a week for 8 hours a day.
Cost: A new mill with a high performance/capacity with 650 kg/h grinding capacity per hour will cost £4,820 with a guarantee for 2 years. A set of second hand scales for weighing the bags with cereals will cost us £364.
The Mill Building will be completed this summer by our teams of UK school youth and production will start as soon as the mill/grinder is installed; which we hope to have completed by Autumn 2016 when the grain harvest ends.
