Help Guatemalan Families Grow Vegetable Gardens

Feb 3, 2011

50 Families Benefit from Vegetable Gardens and Nutrition Education

50 households in Guatemala have been provided with the training, tools, and seeds needed to plant their own gardens. Identified as families at high risk for malnutrition, the households benefiting from your donations have the chance to grow healthy food and mitigate their food insecurity.

Rather than depending on outside sources for access to nutritious food, these families have the chance to learn about nutrition and organic gardening – and the most active participants in this project are women providing for their children.

Thanks to support from donors like you, we can curb malnutrition by empowering communities with the education and supplies to grow their own food.
