Organic vegetable gardens in schools.
This project is working in 5 Batwa schools helping around 1200 children access organic vegetables to improve their diet. Before we started the program in these schools, children never had appetite, and could always be sickly but at least; the recent findings indicate that cases of children getting sick have reduced. Children are also able to participate in school gardening, make nursery beds, do mulching and watering and also participate in harvesting and cooking lessons. The schools have formed agricultural clubs where children work with teachers to make agricultural talks. The school leaders have an exchange program with other sister schools where they visit and share experience, talk about different vegetable names and draw their pictures and uses of eating vegetables.
