The School Health Parliament Project
In March 2015, the Movement of Life Uganda team, under the leadership of Gyavira Mwesigwa Bugigi, launched a school gardening project at the St. Agnes Centre for Education in Mbarara town, located in the Western Region of Uganda. The project involves learning about natural health approaches, spreading health information around the school and in the local community, as well as growing fruit trees, vegetables, and medicinal plants. There are now over 10 schools involved in the project and it is also up and running in Nigeria.
The gardening work carried out in the project is organized and conducted through the setting up of a ‘School Health Parliament’ in each school. The members of these parliaments meet regularly to represent their classes. Through participation in this innovative project, children also learn important life skills that they can continue to develop and refine right through to adulthood.
The manual you can download from this page serves as a guideline for founding a ‘School Health Parliament’ in your country. It is designed for teachers and social worker who are interested in natural approaches to healthcare and who want to teach children how to stay healthy and prevent diseases by growing and eating vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables.
If you are interested to work with the Movement of Life and launch a ‘School Health Parliament’ project where you live, please contact us, we’ll look forward to hearing from you!
As more and more people now realize, the majority of the fruits and vegetables on sale in our shops and supermarkets today have been treated with pesticides and herbicides. While they might be nice to look at, they are low in micronutrients and have almost no nutritional value.
In our organic gardening book you can learn how to create an organic garden – even in a small space – and thus how to grow your own supply of vitamins!
The Secret of Cells
Our bodies contain literally billions of tiny cells. Although they are so small, these cells are the secret of life!
‘The Secret of Cells’ explains why having healthy body cells is important, and what we can do to keep them healthy.
The book is designed to enable teachers to give young children a basic understanding of health and nutrition.
