Learners from Ortons Drift Primary school attending a horticultural training at Takarumbidza farm in Mvuma.
The training was meant to cultivate an agro-entrepreneurship mind-set in the learners. This is in line with the STRENGTH in children project’s thrust to address food insecurity amongst learners through motivation and life skills training.
The School Training for Resilience in Emergencies through Nutrition and Good Health (STRENGTH in children) project addresses food insecurity, deteriorating Water Sanitation and Hygiene standards, decreasing motivation and lack of hope amongst primary and secondary school learners. These are often a result of deteriorating school environments that school-going learners are subjected to.
The project also provides children with the life skills and motivation required to overcome the daily struggles in rural Zimbabwe.
