Challenge

Siaka school is a boarding school and receives 21 deaf and blind children aged between 5-18 years from rural and poor areas. The school depends entirely from local and international donors. Feeding the pupils is a daily challenge. We want to create a full kitchen garden in order to provide the children with a healthy and sustainable diet. ** A kg of potatoes harvested is a kg WE DON`T HAVE TO BUY! **

Solution

We are planning to plant : - potatoes , sweet potatoes, vegetables (cabbages, onions, carrots), avocado tree, mango tree etc. Our main objective is to harvest at least 2 kg of vegetables a week and to expand the kitchen garden as soon as possible. For that we need to invest in seeds, fruit tree ,farm tools (shovel, pickaxe, pot.) and fence.

Long-Term Impact

Thanks to your help through Siaka special school, those lovely children will have a conducive environment to study which will promote good results. They will not feel stigmatized when they grow up and will find a proper place in the society. Disability is not Inability!
