What were your biggest successes this season?

We went from one school to 4 new schools! Now we have 2000 children enrolled in this project. WE launched our website greenschools.pk, got the logo made, launched social media page and started conducting sessions at other schools as well.

This learning garden, for which we raised funds, got many more fruiting trees, vegetable and herb plants, new soil and manure, wooden planters and a good harvest!

What challenges did or does your project face?

We had many challenges. We needed funds to repair our fences, buy seeds, new soil, pay the gardener, get benches and other things. We also did not have any separate social media presence or a website.

How are you working to overcome them?

1. got a logo made
2. launched a website
3. made a base for olunteers and teachers
4. brought many of the materials needed from the funds that we collected.

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

We learned its very important to organize your organization as you grow your program. People begin to remember your work and it is easier to expand, ecourange volunteers to join and to raise funds.
