Challenge

The projects are conducted in rural villages near Cuzco, Peru. Low temperatures in these high-altitude climates prevent communities from growing basic fruits and vegetables essential for a well-rounded diet. Constructing greenhouses and providing agricultural education gives students the skills necessary to provide better nutrition in the short-term, while offering practical knowledge to be applied in the long-term.

Solution

We build greenhouses to develop and implement an agricultural education program into the regular curriculum of community schools. The nutritional benefits and practical skills improve health, classroom performance and future prospects for children.

Long-Term Impact

Up to 200 children at each school will receive nutritious meals and learn agricultural skills that will provide basic necessities for families, improve performance in the classroom, and support the community's well-being.
