#GivingTuesday: 1 December 2015
And help provide reliable and healthy food for urban schools and communities.
Leading British chefs have donated African-inspired recipes to Farm Africa in aid of #GivingTuesday. Download them and donate today!
#GivingTuesday on Tuesday 1 December, 2015 is a global day dedicated to giving. This #GivingTuesday Farm Africa is raising funds for our Christmas appeal, which focuses on how we are helping young people in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, to set up vegetable gardens and add much-needed nutrients to their diets.
Many schoolchildren in Dagoretti, Nairobi, eat just one proper meal a day, at school. All too often, this is bland and lacks the vital nutrients growing children need.
Farm Africa believes in farm aid, not food aid. With your support we can help schools and youth clubs establish vegetable plots that will provide a plentiful supply of nutritious vegetables for these children to eat. And they will also learn practical farming skills that will set them up well for the future.
As Christmas approaches and you plan your family's Christmas lunch, please make a #GivingTuesday donation.
