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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

will grow 100 fruits at each of the 25 schools and these will provide fruits to children,shade 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.
