From Joseph L. Conteh, Project Manager at the Makankisa Child Care Centre in Yele, Sierra Leone:
To ginger the spirit of Agriculture in the hearts of our staff and children, I have started planting Pineapple stems within the compound, using the support of the older boys. I encouraged the mothers and the young girls to start a backyard garden of potato vines, garden eggs, green etc. I also encouraged the security guards to support me in planting Banana tubers. We have also planted verity of flowers and trees.
Also, hand washing is practiced every day and is becoming a culture for children and staff.
