Over the past two weeks, FHF has delivered sessions on gardening to unprivileged Lebanese and Syrian children, as part of the summer camp activities organized at the educational center in Aley managed by Yalla! Pour Les Enfants.

Students, teachers and parents attended the training sessions that were given by FHF experts, and participated in the practicum that was organized in the small garden of the school.

Now that the onions have developed roots, let's plant them! :)

The project partners hope to raise enough funds to rehabilitate the school garden, hence enabling the kids to produce healthy and organic food starting October, when they are back to school.
