Income Generating Activities (IGAs)

OCV aims to achieve financial sustainability as the home continues to grow. As such, the establishment and good management of income generating activities (IGAs) is very important. Farming is currently the core IGA at OCV. However, additional IGAs will continue to be implemented.
