New Canaan Farm

Among all the social projects of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, which are not few, the New Canaan Farm, in Irecê, in the state of Bahia, Brazil, is without a doubt one of the boldest. Situated in a region severely affected by drought and hunger, the farm, which measures over 500 hectares, can be considered an oasis in a land devastated by the sun.

In 1999, Bishop Macedo watched the news and was moved, as was the rest of the country, when he saw images of the suffering of the people in Irecê, which had once been one of the biggest producers of beans but was suffering a merciless drought that had made the soil infertile. And so he came up with the idea of building a place that could bring hope to people who were facing certain death - a place marked by dry cracked soil and mugs without water, the source of life.

Food and education have been the project’s main objectives, which now helps more than 700 children a day. Besides attending primary school and having medical and dental treatments, the children and their families now have regular meals as well. Dairy cows, pigs, chicken and fish are raised on the farm in order to fortify the little ones’ diets.

By utilizing the same irrigation techniques as used in Israeli kibbutzim, the New Canaan Farm produces corn, beans, soya, onions, carrots, beetroots, and many other fruits and vegetables—besides, agriculture is part of the school’s curriculum. The project of the New Canaan Farm has created more than 180 jobs.

When visiting Irecê, Bishop Macedo saw for himself the work done on the farm. See the pictures.
