subsistence farms at Child-headed homes in eSwatini Africa

By Annie Todt No Comments
What were your biggest successes this season?

We raised even more than we anticipated (thank you) so we were able to double our reach! We built 20 subsistence farms at child headed homes offering fresh vegetables in a sustainable way to over 100 orphaned children.

What challenges did or does your project face?

In Malindza village where half of the farms are, they rely on rain catchment systems for irrigation. So we are hopeful for an abundance of rain so the gardens flourish.

How are you working to overcome them?

Praying for rain! And supplying the kids with wheel barrows and tanks to fetch water from ditches if the rain in their tanks at home is insufficient.

What did you or your project learn this season that might be useful to others as well?

Since we are unable to travel to Swaziland during this pandemic, using a reliable and trustworthy project manager was crucial to our success!
