- Antiretroviral therapy, or ART, is less effective when a patient is malnourished, cauising HIV/AIDS and malnutrition to form a vicious cycle.
- Gardens for Health offers gardening kits to HIV patients to improve their health and their odds of continuing ART.
- The improved nutrition these gardens provide can also increase resistance to TB, the leading infectious killer for people living with HIV.
Give a home garden to a family in Gasobo District, Rwanda
In Rwanda’s Gasabo District, one in three agricultural households is food insecure, meaning that they do not have access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food for an active and healthy life.
Gardens for Health International, a SeeYourImpact Partner, targets families who are struggling with malnutrition and equips them with the resources and knowledge they need for greater self-sufficiency. Malnutrition need not be a chronic condition, even for those facing poverty and disease.
A gift of $250 provides a family of five with a nutritionally rich home garden, regular visits from a skilled agronomist, and three months of educational workshops, including weekly cooking demonstrations.
