Did you know that plants grow faster and larger in greenhouses? This #funfactfriday means a lot to our greenhouse project at the Watoto Wema Home in Nairobi, Kenya. The produce that is grown through this sustainable micro-project supplements the children’s diets with healthy produce and is also sold in the market. The profits from selling these veggies will go towards educational costs for the children. These greenhouses are changing lives! 

The #LetGirlsLearn is a White House-sponsored initiative that #FLOTUS champions that is working to transform the world through the education of girls. Educating girls creates healthier families and improved communities with lower rates of HIV/AIDS, infant mortality and maternal mortality. By increasing girls’ access to education, we make this world a much better place to live. Find out more: https://www.whitehouse.gov/letgirlslearn
