Community Challenges Addressed

 Mpigi district was gifted by nature with a great forest cover and swamps. But most of this has been destroyed as the populations seek free land to grow ginger and burn charcoal to be able to sustain their families. In turn, families don't grow food crops which makes the costs of food so high in Mpigi. Food is bought from outside communities as all people in Kammengo focus on growing ginger, leaving children extremely malnourished

The home gardening project teaches children and their parents the importance of good nutrition and eating a balanced diet and how they can maximize food production on a small space while conserving the environment.
