LOOK AT MY HEALTHY VEGETABLE GARDEN!!!

Improving children's nutrition

Sandra Callisaya, a working mother in Betanzos, Chuquisaca, faces many barriers and set-backs in life. She has not been to school and works long hours to secure a small livelihood. Through our CAMINAS household vegetable garden strategy, Sandra has been able to take a more leading role in her development and has succeeded in ensuring her children are well fed. She is now motivating other women in her community to follow her example.
