Fresh Vegetables For Fresh Life Community and School Garden
Community Development Foundation (CDF) has been working with the local community since 1998 for community development, and capacity building of community groups has been the integral part of CDF activities.
Every year CDF celebrates international kitchen gardening day with school children and community members. Currently CDF is working with LEAD Pakistan on Climate Change & adaptation project and kitchen gardening in schools and at household level which is the need of this area to meet the objectives of food security problems. The main purpose of proposed project is to establish a garden for exposure, trainings and awareness for school children and community to show that how garden will be established and what are its benefits. With the help of this garden we will trained students & parents and local community to start kitchen gardening in their homes and this garden will demonstrate as kitchen gardening institution where students and community members will gain training and knowledge about procedures to grow seasonal vegetables. It will raise interest in students and community for money saving and for growing fresh vegetables in their homes. Currently CDF is managing 10 Elementary Schools with the help of Sindh Education Foundation (SEF) and there are 1873 students are enrolled in these schools and in other side CDF working in five villages with the support of LEAD Pakistan where there is population is more then 5500. So this project garden will directly benefit to all these persons (1873 students + 46 teachers and approximately 5500 community members). Further, after the establishing this garden, supporting partner (SEF and LEAD Pakistan) of CDF will encourage their other partners to promote kitchen gardening in their working areas.
