Challenge

There is a significant problem with malnutrition, stunting and hunger among children in Tanzania. The project will address effects of hunger among schoolchildren in Ileje District directly by developing a civil society driven and transparent model. The proposed project will also address the problem of poor nutrition by supplementing the traditional school lunch with nutritious vegetables through the establishment of the school gardens.

Solution

These gardens will be driven and managed by school clubs where children will learn about the link between hunger, nutrition and WASH.School gardens can help to provide healthy school meals and generate income for school funds, but they are primarily a platform for learning - learning how to grow food for a healthy diet, improve the soil, and protect the environment. It will improve pupils knowledge, altitude and life skills related to food security and nutrition.

Long-Term Impact

The project partner will support the communities and facilitate the design of a school feeding mechanism that suit the local environment and takes into consideration local tradition, customs, norms etc. The gardens will grow crops which are sustainable for the area. Having a school feeding committee in place (chosen by community members and parents), and having a source of income from gardening to support the school cook will ensure sustainability even after the end of the project.
