In Guatemala, 75% of the children are still under- and malnourished. Since these are children from impoverished families, almost all parents practice agriculture (subsistence farming) at home. With your help, the schools will be equipped with school gardens where the children learn about many different kinds of vegetables and medicinal plants. With the vertical bamboo extension elements, it is made the best use of the schoolyards' minimal outside space. The cycles of nature are experienced here: from raising the seeds, observing the growth, harvesting, and processing, to composting and fertilization. Finally, the students bring their knowledge home to their families and become multipliers.
In addition to providing the bamboo elements, students and teachers receive training and regular supervision on the use of the elements and stainable cultivation by our local permaculture expert. All these measures are carried out in accordance with the appropriate hygiene and corona rules.

One garden construction costs 250€ and every school needs a minimum of 4 to be able to give proper lessons.
