Summary

Over 4,500 school children will benefit from this initiative and over 10,700 community members will be provided with skills on modern farming. By growing grain and vegetables on school farms, schools are able to provide lunch and improve the children's nutritional intake. Sustainable farming techniques are also taught to parents and the community, which are then applied in their own small farms.

Challenge

85% of the Tanzanian population resides in rural areas where arable land is not fully utilized nor made favourable for cultivation. In the Manyara region, government primary schools are not always able to provide school lunches. Due to local farming practices, low harvests of grain are a problem and advanced farming techniques are needed to improve this situation. We will support schools, communities and parents to learn agricultural practices to boost food production in schools and communities.

Solution

Schools will have vegetable gardens and children will be provided with 1 hot meal for lunch, 5 days per week. This improves student's meals and promotes academic performance. Community members will improve their expertise on best agricultural practices for sustainable access to food. They will be provided with information on the use of pesticides, irrigation channels and mulching as a means to limit water usage.

Long-Term Impact

The project will reach over 4,500 school children, their families and the wider community. By ensuring that children are well nourished, school attendance increases and leads to better academic outcomes for children. Teaching the families and the wider communities farming techniques will reach over 10,700 members. The long term impact will be better health for the community, new farming skills which can be applied and passed on to others and better yearly harvests.
