BENEFITING: GLOBAL ROOTS
Global Roots improves the lives of disadvantaged children by supporting local humanitarians in places where children are suffering due to neglect, famine or civil strife.
The children that Global Roots help suffer from a shortage of food, , medical care, education, and family support. They are victims of starvation, poor living conditions and all kinds of abuse including sexual predation.
Current project :
Kenya Food Gardens (check out the video!)
Promoting food education, child engagement, fighting malnutrition and illegal poaching through green-houses and nutrition tuition . Working with local communities around Tsavo national park, we have put in place a solution to feed the HIV positive children under treatment and the poorest communities. The low-water green-house technology we install is an elegant, cost-effective solution which allows the most output per liter of water by square meter, is simple to operate and maintain and is are relatively inexpensive and available locally for purchase.
