The main objetive of Adapta Sertao is to help small farmers to cope with droughts in the semi-arid regions of Brazil. The project landed at 4 elementary schools in the municipality of Pintadas. The objective was to help children strengthening the connection with the environment in which they live. It was also to improve their diet and love for what the earth can provide them. The action consisted in creating vegetable gardens at the schools and help the teachers to associate the work in the garden with the content of the disciplines such as language, geography, science and maths.
The result of the action was very encouraging as children , teachers and parents got involved with the installation of irrigation systems as well as the planting of vegetables and harverting.
In 2012 we hope to get funding to do the vegetable gardens in at least 5 more schools. Any amount given will be used for that purpose, that ultimately will improve nutrition.
