You can grow your own food. We can help.

Dandira Community Garden

WOSFOU is to set up a garden project on a 20,000 square metres piece of land which is part of the community land.  The crops to be grown will include Maize, Cassava and Vegetables will also be planted. The project is to rely on village labor to do all the digging and planting. 
Medicinal and nutritious crops will be planted including; greens that are to help people living with HIV/AIDS boost their immune system and the vegetables including carrots and cucumber which will help the elderly improve their eye sight.
The community leaders will mobilize the community especially the youth and men to clear and plough the land as well as to do the planting and weeding. 
The goals of the project include but not limited to the following: 1) to provide food for the elderly and the less disadvantaged in the community, 2) to reduce crime rates in the area especially those crimes committed by idle youth as they will be busy in the garden, 3) to help people living with HIV/AIDS purchase ARVs and food supplements using money received from the sale of the produce
