Virtual Garden Project: Help me and Gardens for Health fight childhood malnutrition in Rwanda

In Rwanda, an astounding 44% of children are malnourished. Gardens for Health is determined to change that and I am determined to help them. GHI aims to empower women to feed their own families with dignity by equipping mothers with the tools and know-how to grow their own vegetable garden. By raising just $250, I will be able to grow my own Virtual Garden to help a mother in Rwanda grow a real one–providing all the seeds and training she needs–so she has the ability to feed her children.

Please donate to help me help Gardens for Health empower mothers to end chronic childhood malnutrition!

Give a home garden to a family in Gasobo District, Rwanda

In Rwanda’s Gasabo District, one in three agricultural households is food insecure, meaning that they do not have access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food for an active and healthy life.

Gardens for Health International, a SeeYourImpact Partner, targets families who are struggling with malnutrition and equips them with the resources and knowledge they need for greater self-sufficiency. Malnutrition need not be a chronic condition, even for those facing poverty and disease.

A gift of $250 provides a family of five with a nutritionally rich home garden, regular visits from a skilled agronomist, and three months of educational workshops, including weekly cooking demonstrations.

Gardens for Health believes malnutrition need not be a chronic condition

Gardens for Health provides lasting agricultural solutions to the problem of chronic childhood malnutrition. We partner with rural health clinics to equip families facing malnutrition with seeds, livestock, and know-how for greater self-sufficiency.
