School gardens in Ghana

Thanks to the Scouts of the unit 42nd Leopold III, IDAY-Ghana has been able to start a school garden project in order to contribute to the improvement of the quality of education in 3 schools in Ghana. > The school garden aims at reducing tropical infectious diseases thanks to medicinal plants such as Artemisia annua, moringa, lemon grass or neem. > It is also composed of plants with a high nutritional value that improve the nutritional status of students. The school garden also appears to be an ideal entry point for introducing environmental concepts, which can be adapted to national or local concerns. It is, in fact, a place to learn about respect for the natural environment through its immediate discovery: awareness of biodiversity, respect for natural cycles, water management, the benefits of natural fertilizers (versus pesticides and chemical products), etc.
The goal is to contribute to the improvement of the quality of education by fighting malnutrition and tropical diseases. The project thus seeks to reduce poverty (the main cause of school abandonment) by bringing economic and nutritional autonomy and useful practical knowledge to the youth. IDAY a expérimenté dans plusieurs pays que l’implantation de ces jardins scolaires conduisait à des améliorations spectaculaires des résultats scolaires, une réduction significative des dépenses de santé et une meilleure compréhension des défis environnementaux. IDAY has experienced in several countries that the implementation of these school gardens led to spectacular improvements in school results, a significant reduction of health expenses and a better understanding of environmental challenges. The school garden serves as an awareness and training space for students and teachers and also allows the community to benefit from the knowledge gained. The school’s Green Club and the community will start their school garden.
