VICTORIES IN THE GARDEN

This father and daughter are proud to show off their growing Victory Garden in their village of Khombe. For the first time, villagers can grow enough food to eat, earn income, improve nutrition, live healthy lives, and take control of their own future.
Couples Working Side by Side for a Brighter Future!
The man in this photo took a one-day F2F Victory Garden training workshop taught by one of our local facilitators. He was so excited about what he learned, that he shared the knowledge with his wife. Now, each of them have created a garden, side by side.

Siblings Working Side by Side for a Brighter Future!
3 sisters created their own Victory Garden after their parents, who created their own garden, were so excited about it that they taught their daughters how to create their own. Everyone is now learning about nutrition, gardening, soil, mulch, compost and most importantly, self-reliance.
