Sinoni Primary School Gardens

The Green Living Planet (GLP) partners with the poorest schools in Tanzania.  In 2014, one of the schools GLP is working with is Sinoni Primary School in Arusha which has over 1,000 students, many of whom come from extremely poor backgrounds.

GLP’s aim is to educate students about the environment as we believe the future of its conservation, essentially lies within their hands.  Education is heavily supported by practical activities such as tree planting.

GLP would like to build a number of vegetable gardens at Sinoni Primary School  to enable the teachers to begin a daily lunch programme to feed the children.  Similar to most government schools in Tanzania, children often have to walk for hours each day to get to school, often on little or no food or water which means they are ill prepared for learning and the daily school activities.

The gardens will provide key vegetables including a mixture of local greens, tomatoes and beans to feed the students in order to give them the best opportunity to reach their potential in the classroom during the school day.
