Local primary school gives land for gardening project
The Rural Ability Programme’s community disability workers (CDWs) work with a group of 15 people who have a range of physical and intellectual disabilities and at the beginning of 2016, a group of patients approached the CDWs with an idea. They wanted to start their own vegetable garden.
A member of the school governing body of a local primary school mentioned that there was a large piece of land at the school that had been designated for a garden, but had never been used. He encouraged RAP CDW, Buzeka Nkanunu, to meet with the school’s principal to request the use of the land for a community garden.
