The PLANTING SEEDS project- "Feed for a Lifetime"


Project's overarching goal: This project's advocacy campaign focuses on bringing awareness to the benefits of chemical-safe food production; not only regarding its importance to health and national food security, but also to sustainable living and creation of sustainable livelihoods. Its main target audience is current students within the primary school system.

Objectives:

  1. To develop lesson plans (with corresponding worksheets and practical activities) tailored to the curriculum of the primary school system; which affords its beneficiaries opportunities for application of food production theory.
  2. To provide practical food production learning opportunities based on Good Agriculture Practice (GAP) to 100 students per month per school
  3. To facilitate sustained application of learning within participating schools (utilizing GAP) through development of customized garden-on-site kits (which includes establishment of grow box systems/ aquaponic systems/hydroponic/ systems/ animal pens and greenhouses at the school)
  4. To promote creation of value added products towards reduction in juvenile delinquency and bullying, whilst simultaneously promoting critical thinking, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Duration: January 2019 - December 2019
