Mutoni, aged 4, lives with her mother and grandparents in a house on a steep slope in Rwanda. Despite beginning with poor soil, Mutoni’s family has planted and harvested cabbages, carrots, beets, and amaranth in the last season with the help of Gardens for Health’s agricultural agent Samuel, who visits the family regularly for technical assistance. Mutoni and her mother have also been going to the health center on a weekly basis for cooking demonstrations and education sessions with Gardens for Health. All this has resulted in Mutoni gaining weight and slowly but surely losing some of the signs of what was once quite prominent malnutrition.
Thanks to George, Henry and Cheya, Mutoni’s family is growing their own good health!
