Nowadays, the vast majority of Cameroonian students do not have a meaningful connection to agriculture. Many schools in both rural and urban areas exist without a garden or farm. This has made many children remain disconnected from agriculture. Students have developed a lukewarm attitude towards agriculture as they see it as something for those who have never been to school. Moreover, many children neglect the importance of knowing the background of the food they eat and the work local farmers put into it.
Organic Vegetable Cultivation
GRANT AMOUNT REQUEST
United Action for Children (UAC)
To tackle this issue, the local organization United Action for Children Cameroon wants to prepare the next generation of farmers from an early stage. The organization, therefore, would like to set up a school vegetable farm and introduce the rearing of chickens at Jamadianle Nursery and Primary School, Buea, South West Region of Cameroon. By introducing them to gardening, poultry, and farming, they will, among other benefits, learn to generate income.
All the 750 children (390 girls, 360 boys) attending the school will benefit directly from the project. Gender equality shall be guaranteed through equal participation of both boys and girls within this project’s scope. The school community shall provide both land and labor as their own participation in this project.
