Seeds for Africa believes that African children deserve a future where they have been empowered with education and skills that enable them to feed themselves. It is important for the people we help to have the opportunity and the dignity to look after themselves and not rely on others.
Our feedback tells us that we are achieving our key aims. We hope you enjoy reading a selection of the comments we receive from our beneficiaries. They are reproduced in the people's own words. We will bring new ones as we receive them so do keep looking:
Eric in Ghana:
The principle of organic agriculture has been learnt. They have also got the opportunity to eat this life everlasting. We are working harder to combat malnutrition in this school and other schools around with this project.
Joseph in Kenya:
The improvement we had in these time is that we employed 8 youths from the community as full time working to improve their life standard and learn to create employment for their future.
Willy in Malawi:
Milestone hs been achieved since the children are being taken care properly due to the small funds collected from the gardens. The risk of malnutrition has been greatly reduced due to the nutritious food supplements. Aover 200 children from 4 child care centresare benefitting from the programme
Sheri in South Africa:
Gardening seems like an obvious way to improve nutrition but the residents can't afford fencing to keep grazing animals out and can't afford tools needed to dig into the hard soil. In addition to the improvements in nutrition now made, the residents are gaining a new sense of independence and dignity.
Dominic in Tanzania:
Our most successful crops were lettuce, spinach, cabbage, pumpkins, cucumber, yams, potatoes, onions, garlic and pineapples. In one garden we planted bananas. We received all the support needed from the community since the community was wholly involved in preparations, cultivation, harvesting and distributions of roduce from the gardens. The children came to garden sto learn how to grow vegetables and how to them. Those involved in the project were able to secure nutritious diet for their family which benefitted their children at school. They also were able to get incomes from the sell of vegetables. It increased childrens ability to concentrate in class.
