Summary

This project will construct low cost greenhouse within the ground of 10 schools so that local communities can generate a reliable source of nutrition as well as income to fund the education of children. The secondary aim of the project is to use the greenhouses to cultivate the growth of banana tissue plantlets. The plantlets will provide a premium source of revenue for the community and help stable supply of bananas in the region- which fluctuates significantly- reducing food insecurity.
