School Gardens are Key to Ending Hunger in Our Schools.
Mission & Vision
Hunger can prevent students from making the most of a formal education, no matter how hard they try to ignore its effects. We aim to tackle low school enrollment and attendance, high dropout rates and low academic achievement in Africa through the establishment of school gardens where the children plant the seeds, water and nurture the vegetables and harvest their crop. We use vertical gardens which use less space and less water to grow vegetables to maturity and we plant fruit trees which will provide more food in the future.
What is one of the most prominent obstacles hindering the child’s learning process? Hunger. Hungry students cannot learn. Uneducated adults cannot feed themselves. School Gardens can help to get children into school, help keep them there, increase enrollment and reduce truancy. Ending hunger in Schools is a goal that is literally within our grasp.
We strive to promote a new approach to philanthropy and set new benchmarks for impact and change the way the world thinks about charitable giving. We are partnering with some of the most passionate and driven philanthropists on the globe to promote a new approach of ending hunger in our schools.
Ending child hunger in schools might take 10 years, it might take 15 years. But when it does happen, it will 100 percent be because of heroes like you, that had a concern for other people in need — a concern to defend a moral cause, knowing there is a personal risk, done without expectation of reward.
