The Children’s Home Horticultural Project
‘Grow our own’ nutritious food, self-sufficiency, and sustainability
In a year when we have been unable to hold our normal fundraising events this 'Match Funded' Big Give Christmas Campaign provides a great opportunity.
Please help us reach our £10,000 target
One donation Twice the Impact!
The project will improve the sustainability of our Children’s home in Sarangkot by providing organic fresh fruit and vegetables for the Home and local villagers, as well as generating an income to offset other expenditure such as clothes, education etc. Land at the home is exposed to adverse weather and as a consequence crops in the garden often fail. Water supplies are scarce and unreliable. Fruit and vegetables have to be bought at considerable cost and at some distance.
The project involves building protected ‘pit greenhouses’ which will provide fresh produce for the home and local villagers but also training opportunities and work for those who have lost their jobs as a consequence of the pandemic.
