Due to the occasional donations in our part of the world, homes are forced to choose between feeding their children a well-balanced diet, supporting their education or employing a sufficient number of caretakers. As a result, children in orphanage homes especially on the African continent feed on starch-based diets with little access to protein and other micro-nutrients and have higher rates of malnutrition than the rest of their communities. These children often experience stunted physical and cognitive growth along with reduced energy, immunity and concentration. Besides, orphanage homes are often overlooked as institutions for the implementation of any kind of solutions. The initiative therefore, seeks to revive the passion of agriculture in orphanage homes especially in developing and undeveloped countries.
We want to look beyond occasional donations and ensure sustainable food production in local orphanage homes.
This is in fulfillment of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2.
