One of the support destinations is a school garden installed in an elementary school near Tanzania’s Dar es Salaam, where about 8 to 10 types of vegetables are grown and used as school lunch materials. Students learn about nutrition and eating of vegetables in class, and when they reach sixth grade, they are divided into chopsticks to take care of the garden.
