School Gardening & Feeding Program
Helping young minds grow
Developing the next generation of healthy, well-educated, and skilled labor force to sustain the economy.
Ever gone to school or work with an empty stomach? Then surely you can remember the difficulties you had while trying to concentrate on the tasks given to you. In many schools in Rwanda, more than half of the students can’t study properly because of the food.
School gardens: education without borders that guarantees a better future.
School gardens make something very difficult possible: bringing together in a single activity the aspects of food sovereignty, community production of knowledge and food, environmental education and gastronomic culture, preservation of local biodiversity, and strengthening (or reactivating) the links between the ecosystem and its inhabitants.
