In rural Zimbabwe, some villages need a bit of support to get healthy, nutritious food for themselves or their families.

Kids at school sometimes aren’t functioning at a high level as the food that is available and provided by the school, such as plain porridge, do not have enough nutrients or vitamins for the growing children’s minds.

In order to help nurture this next generation we work with nutrition gardens that are committed to educating the community on how to practice good, balanced, nutrition in their own homes.

This program will have you work in community gardens, nurseries, villager’s houses, and schools, as a part of spreading awareness to their agriculture and nutrition lessons.

You’ll be taking part in planting, watering, and harvesting crops such as cabbage, carrot, tomato, peas, banana, orange, and mango.

You will also be involved with cooking and serving nutritional food from our gardens to the local children and students!
