HOME GARDENING PROJECT FOR SINGLE MOTHERS/ WIDOWS

This is a farming system that combines different physical, social, and economic functions on the area of land around the family home.

Africa is plagued with civil, religious, and tribal wars, diseases, partner abandonment, and other ailments all over the continent.

As a result, we have a high rate of both single mothers and widows in Africa. A study done March 5th, 2020  shows that Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest percentage of single mothers worldwide at 32%.

And let’s not forget about the widows left to tend alone and for themselves.

That is why, we at Seeding Africa along with your help and support, would like to show our African single moms and widows that we do care about them and that besides not being forgotten, we know that they are the backbone of the African family.

Having a home garden project is very beneficial in many aspects:

Economic: generates income

Social: prevents loneliness promotes cohesiveness on a community level

Nutritional benefits for both mom and kids

Health benefits and exposure to Vitamin D

Organic Options in crops 

IRRIGATION SYSTEMS IN AFRICA

With the global population expected to reach over 9 billion by 2050, there is a continuous need to increase food production and we believe Irrigation systems can help achieve that.

Soil Irrigation

In areas where there is insufficient or lack of water due to the weather or the soil, we plan on implementing Land Irrigating systems to help grow agricultural crops, maintain landscapes, and re vegetate disturbed soils in dry areas, during periods of less than average rainfall.

Irrigation also has other uses in crop production, including drought protection, suppressing weed growth in grain fields and preventing soil consolidation.

As there are many systems and methods of Irrigation systems, we will focus on a combination of both traditional and modern methods of Irrigation depending on the local situation. However, we will also use and promote Well Irrigation as it is one of the simplest and cheapest source of irrigation and ca be dug at any convenient place.

Another benefits of using this simple method is that several chemicals such as nitrate, chloride, sulphate etc are generally found mixed in well water, they add to the fertility of the soil when it reaches the agriculture field along with the well water.

Besides the Well Irrigation, we will also work with other types of Irrigation systems such as sprinkler, surface, drip, manual, solar powered pump and sub Irrigation system where necessary.

SCHOOL GARDEN PROJECT

One of the greatest methods to augment meals for students is to have a school vegetable garden. Fresh herbs and veggies provide additional nourishment that increases a student’s ability to concentrate and perform better.

Seeding Africa recognizes that education, sensitivity, and support are essential components of long-term food garden programs, which is why we use a small-scale approach. Studying alone is insufficient; practical experience should be included as well.

Children who go to school famished are unable to study effectively, physical activities decrease, cognitive capacities deteriorate, and infection resistance drops. Their school performance is frequently poor, and they may drop out early. Chronic malnutrition reduces individual potential and has negative consequences for productivity, income, and country development over time.

The School Garden project will equip children to become leaders and citizens who understand how the natural world works, see patterns that link human activity to nature, and have the knowledge, values, and abilities to act successfully based on that understanding.

Food production, processing, transportation, marketing, preparation, and disposal are all essential aspects of central sustainability concerns such as resources, energy, population, and water and soil conservation. Food is an excellent starting point for understanding the links between hunger, trade policy, workers’ and children’s rights, energy usage, and climate change.
