Just like many other countries around the world, coronavirus lockdowns brought many challenges to schools and children in Uganda. When schools participating in our School Health Parliament project were closed, for example, many of the nutritious plants that were being grown there were lost. During that time, the training and work we have been carrying out in our community gardening project in Uganda became more important than ever.
Following the reopening of schools in Uganda, the revival of their fruit and vegetable gardens is underway. The photos above show children at St. Joseph’s Primary school, Lwebitakuli, Sembabule, hard at work in their school garden.
