Summary

This project is working to enable schools around the world to provide self-sustaining meals to students, through the implementation of vegetable gardens. We train the local community members that work at the school in crop management and in health and nutrition so they can become the local experts to ensure their students get a healthy meal that keeps the students' brain active and the catering costs down as the products are grown at the school.

Challenge

Education is very important and a key to breaking the poverty cycle, however, many children in poorer or more rural areas struggle to stay in school and concentrate effectively as they are struggling with hunger and lack of nutritious meals. As well as affecting the children, hunger also affects the community members and staff which is why these community gardens could help to eliminate a range of issues. This is a big problem in many countries as poverty is still a large global issue.

Solution

By implementing veggie gardens in schools and areas hit hard by poverty we can help to alleviate the hunger problem by providing sustainable meals to children as well as providing community members and staff with important education and knowledge around sustainable agriculture. The produce grown can also be sold to make an income and provide the schools with resources as well as cut down costs for the school canteen as everything would be grown in the garden.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide nutritious meals to school children, helping them to maintain good concentration and learn effectively as well as benefit the surrounding community through skills training and income-generation opportunities. This also helps these communities, schools and individuals become independent and more environmentally friendly as they learn to implement cost-effective and efficient ways of growing food and feeding the school children.
