Grandmas’ Gardens

Grandmas’ Gardens is a unique programme developed by Reach the Children UK.  Grandmothers are the de facto caregivers in Africa to their grandchildren whose parents have become victims of HIV AIDS.  They are often left with no land or income and precious few material possessions to feed, clothe and educate their grandchildren.  Reach the Children UK has bought and leased land, donating garden plots to grandmothers with orphans to care for.  With tools, seeds and technical help grandmas are growing vegetables to feed the children, with some to sell to pay the school fees and medical bills.  Grandmas’ Gardens have been established in Kenya and Uganda.
