A farm which we are very proud of in SVP!

S. Vicente de Paulo’s farming plot is not just a source of income for the School!
After a few difficulties with the first sowings during the current year, SVP School farming plot is finally bearing fruits. This farming plot caters for the school’s needs, strengthening the After-School Support daily snack, sponsored by ALG. While the children benefit from support classes to strengthen their Portuguese language and Mathematics skills, the moms work hard in the farming plot, on a rotation basis, plating onions, lettuce, potatoes, cabbages or tomatoes. The sale of these produces benefits not only the school itself but also finances individual projects for the moms: small scale businesses to sell produce in their own neighbourhoods, allowing them to be self-sufficient.

ALG is proud of this project which is an example of sustainability and empowerment for the Mozambican women.
