Ownership and responsibility— a garden can give that, even to young urban men like Steve Lano. A member of Face-to-Face’s HIV+ Teen Club, Steve learned to created a victory garden from three of our rural village facilitators.
Programs can make other programs better. So F2F connects our HIV+ youth with our HIV+ mothers club and both connect with our big Victory Garden Campaign.
Now Steve has a garden — a garden to call his own. May the beans, squash, okra, and mustard greens grow quickly, and may Steve also find joy in feeding his family.
P.S. Special thanks to BMB Gym and Chrigu Imhof in Bern, Switzerland for your dedication and support of the HIV+ Teen club and Rising Stars.
