Community Garden Project, Tanzania
Awadhi and Mwajuma along with 28 club members decided to start a vegetable garden as an income generating activity in their community. They believe that apart from the learnings received in the Girls’ Advancement Program on rights, life skills, and sexual/reproductive health, they needed something else to keep them united, practice what they have learned, and share their new knowledge.
Despite the lack of capital, the club decided to start somewhere regardless how small it could be. They began planting maize in a small Lushoto District village. They believe that in order to have their voices heard in their community, they needed to do something visible and tangible.
