Alongside the social-emotional and academic support we provide to our children in Kericho, we have planted different seeds (potatoes, beans, cabbage, carrots, and corn) on the land surrounding the home. In the future, this project will be self- sustaining and provide food for the children living in CHI’s home; at the same time, the agricultural project will teach them to take care of their own fields and to work together. We also have two cows that provide us all the milk that we use there at the home.
Through the agricultural project we have been able to provide the children with the tools to understand the importance of sowing and harvesting their own food, which is also the sustenance for everyone living in the house. The project also shows the importance of teamwork to achieve great results and motivates everyone involved by showcasing the substantial impact each child can have in and on their community.
