Challenge

Pupils lack access to nutritional values derived from especially fruits which they sometimes only taste when at home during their holidays. Many schools lack shade trees for pupils to study and also relax. Thunderstorms and lightning have and continue claiming a number of lives and many schools structures have been destroyed yet this could have been avoided if there were wind breaks and trees.

Solution

The Fruit & Shade Tree project will encourage children to grow fruits of a variety and shade 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 and academic performance.

Long-Term Impact

This project will grow 100 fruit trees at each of the 10 schools and these will provide fruits to children, and 100 shade trees for the schools. Children will be able to raise their own seedlings which they can plant and sell some to raise income. Environment shall be conserved.
