Excited Olori stated, “The love Garden is really not just because of its yield but because of the many symbolic allusions it poses teaching the children life lessons about timing, planting, waiting and harvesting.

“Additionally, they are also being introduced to financial literacy through trade. The kids of Iyara community held a market day and sold the ugu they harvested, realising #6,250 from sales.

“Knowing what to do with money is important. But teaching kids about earning money is an essential step. They need to understand how to earn starting with kids friendly jobs, such as this trade from their garden proceeds. The Iyara kids are off to a great start and I celebrate with them today”.
