Fr. Stan works with young adults in the Alenga parish on agricultural projects to produce local food sources not previously actualized.
Thanks to the generosity of the community of Rosary High School in Aurora, IL, and friends of Fr. Stan, we have realized the dream of starting a pig farm to help provide additional resources to make the parish self-sustaining. Pigs have been purchased and are kept on the mission grounds. As the population of the herd grows the pigs are sold at a low cost or in exchange for individual community service. This project has been very successful and is now self-sufficient.
Two 300 square meters have been completed and generating revenue. The proceeds from the sales of the fish are used to benefit the orphans and people infected with HIV/AIDS. As the fish mature, the ponds are drained and the fish harvested. After the harvest the pond is refilled and stocked with new hatchlings. It costs approximately $55 to restock the pond each time.
