The crops are growing at the greenhouse at Watoto Wema Home in Kenya! Our sustainable greenhouse project is designed to benefit the 57 children who live there, by targeting their nutrition and education. 40% of the veggies grown will go towards supplementing the children’s diets and the other 60% will be sold in the markets. The profits from selling the vegetables will pay for the secondary school fees of the older children. We’re looking forward to the first harvest of these crops!
