                               Kitchen Gardens
ChildsLife provides mothers and their families in Kibera and Mukuru slums in Nairobi and rural areas with Kitchen Gardens so they can grow their own vegetables at home. The Kitchen Garden consists of a firm grow bag filled with good, fertile soil and high quality seeds. Onions, kale and spinach can be grown and provide good quality and healthy food for the family.
This project has proven to be a very successful solution for families struggling with neither enough money for food nor fertile soil in their surroundings to grow on. As part of the covid response program and food security initiatives, ChildsLife expanded
the program into the rural and remote area of Makueni were 200 women and their families received kitchen gardens, including the relevant training on how to optimise their crop.
