CITW Namibia Programme Co-ordinator, Agnes checked in on a few of her partner schools recently.
She reports that despite most staff and learners being off the school premises and homeschooling during lockdown, their eco-gardens are still alive, with numerous vegetables thriving, including cabbages, tomatoes, onions, pumpkins, corn and beetroot!
From the fruit tree donation contributed by CITW last year, she was glad to share that the mango, pawpaw, lemon and orange trees are still alive at Warmquelle and Elias Amxab combined schools too.
She also donated more fruit trees as a reward to the schools that have sustained their initial plantings.
