We were taken with the concept of teaching these children to grow their own food and then learn how to prepare and cook it,  The Lions Club provided the man power and The Cycle for Life Trust funded the initial fee of $2500 and then took up the challenge to build extra garden boxes and repair others at the school.

This is just one of the initiatives undertaken last year and fully fits into our motto of
We give our Children a HAND UP not a HAND OUT
