Subsistence Farms at Child-Headed homes in eSwatini

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

Our children live in child-headed homes and face severe food scarcity. We wanted to insure they would be able to have sustainable food by creating subsistence farms for them. We were able to create farms at 9 child-headed homes totaling 45 children. They all have fencing, seeds/fertilizer, and gardening tools.

What challenges did or does your project face?

Some of the homes are in a very arid desert like region so we are hopeful that the children will be able to harvest enough water to keep the plants alive and thriving.

How are you working to overcome them?

We are building them rain catchment systems to harvest rain water.

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

Engage the community in the project!
