About the Project

 According to the World Food Programme (WFP), 60% of people in Zambia live below poverty line and 42% are considered to be extremely poor. More than 350,000 people in the country are food insecure, i.e. they do not have access to regular supply of healthy food. Furthermore, Zambia has no social welfare system and 90% of the workforce work in the in the informal sector such as traders, market sellers etc. Government is very ineffective and doing nothing to help communities around the rural areas.So we are raising funds to help them build, plant and sustain their own community gardens. By giving residents of low-income areas the training and resources that they need, we are trying to increases the access to healthy affordable fruits and vegetables while creating a sustainable local food system.
