Dordt College senior design vehicle ready to ship to Africa

June 30, 2014

Dordt College senior engineering students designed and constructed a low-cost, durable utility vehicle for use in Northrise University’s Northrise Farm in Ndola, Zambia. The college has been a partner with Northrise for more than five years, helping them find ways to become more self-sustainable.

The vehicle is completed and is in Houston, Texas, where it will wait until sufficient funding of $5,000 is available to cover the cost of shipping it the remainder of the journey to Africa. If you would like to contribute to the shipping cost, please visit

Northrise University is a Christ-centered educational institution dedicated to equipping men and women to work in ministry and business to contribute to the spiritual and economic transformation of Zambia. You can learn more about Northrise Farms at
