By encouraging local communities, schools, and families to produce their own fruits and vegetables, TOP Shamba allows community members to tap their potential while transforming their problems. This initiative grants people the opportunity to solve food insecurity in the community, while producing healthy foods that will increase their immune system and improve their overall health and wellbeing.
It also provides individuals a way to make extra income. For any produce that is not consumed by the family, school or community can be sold to others, allowing for a more financially secure life. In addition to providing the seedlings to community members for them to grow their own food, this project also gives people the knowledge necessary to grow fruits and vegetables successfully.
