You can grow your own food. We can help.

WENDWOA Gardens

WENDWOA Garden Project is to provide food for disadvantaged women and orphans who are members of West Nile Disadvantaged Women and Orphans Association (WENDWOA).  These women have suffered many years of war and exile before returning to their homes on average 15 years ago, to find their homes and gardens destroyed.  The women had suffered physically and mentally from the wars and have had difficulty re-establishing their lives, often without their husbands, who may have lost their lives in the wars.   These women and their families have established WENDWOA in an attempt to bring themselves out of poverty and improve their lives.  The garden has has been established, however money shortage has prevented it from being adequate to help the various families.  The produce from the gardens will be shared among the members - approximately 100 who live locally.
