Growing a Garden
Our garden project is in full swing, with some of the first vegetables planted, while others will be planted soon. We plan to grow greens, cabbages, tomatoes, onions and beans for the program. The drought this year has made things challenging, but we were able to set up a system to pump water from a nearby lake to a tank beside the garden. Our staff underwent specialized training, and are now passing on this knowledge to the children. We also hired two of the older boys (from child-headed homes) in part-time positions to provide consistency and allow them to earn an income. Staff and children alike are very excited to see our first harvest!
