The project seeks to provide generations of Children and teachers with healthy nutrition options and environmental education opportunities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Pupils lack access to nutritional values derived from especially fruits which they sometimes only taste when at home during their holidays. From a study by ECE in Jinja on the intake of fruits by children, Low intakes of fruit by children were established. It was found out that a majority of children are deprived of the nutritional values from fruits. Most of it is taken to markets for sale.

How will this project solve this problem?

The FNS project will encourage children to grow fruits of a variety and trees. It will also teach them how to propagate trees to plant in their homes ensuring access to fruits and reduce on malnutrition illnesses and improve school attendance.

Potential Long Term Impact
