In the last few years they have taken boys from the interior because of great need for accommodation for these bush Negroes to live so that they can go to school in town.

However because of the lack of qualified workers to care for the boys they have stopped taking in new recruits. However in the future ECS desires to begin the program again.

It is their desire to be self sufficient but they realize that they need external investment which they are trusting will come from International grants.

The rental ability is essential to fund the facility. There is a bakery on site manned by a qualified baker and a furniture factory to assist with revenue. There is also a chicken farm, dairy and small holding of vegetables to feed the boy on site.
However the bakery is not cost effective because Engedi is located outside of Paramaribo and therefore there is not much business. The equipment has become old and outdated and parts are difficult to find. So the bakery is only used when there are camps on site and is not used as a commercial entity.

The highest priority of the furniture factory is to relocate to a bigger premises so that they can increase productivity. This facility is on site but is in need of refurbishment.

The dairy farm has 35 cows, they need to build some new cow sheds to house the cattle and there is a need to re fence some of the land.
Workers are needed for the farm and to train the boys in animal husbandry.

Once funding has been sourced and Engedi has been refurbished ECS believe that it will be a viable self funding project. Enabling them to house, train and empower the bush negroes of Suriname and establish a base for Mission Holidays.
