Pedagogical gardens

Designing Hope started settling a pilot garden, highlighting techniques of agroecology and permaculture in Piggs Peak, Swaziland.
This initiative was successful, and it encouraged the NGO to duplicate these gardens with a pedagogical approach targeting both the youth and HIV positive patients.

Designing Hope had established close links with schools in Swaziland (Support of orphans and disadvantaged children in 14 schools since 2011) and with the hospitals (meal distribution to HIV patients since 2005).

This helped settling these pedagogical gardens: 5 in schools and 1 in Piggs peak hospital.

A team of 6 people is in charge of training, and maintenance of gardens. They work with school teachers and volunteers children.





Positive results

In 2015, 134 children participated regularly to trainings,and followed the permaculture training. Schools are located 25km around Piggs Peak (Ekujabuleni, Nginamandvolo, Luhhumaneni and Hhohho MEAs).

-Children are selected from the age of 10/15 years.
-2 only left the group during the year.
-among them, 22% asked for seeds and plants for their home garden.
-23% of parents followed trainings.
-3 Families from Ekujabuleni and Luhhumaneni asked for assistance to start individual gardens, especially older women. Neighboring families were invited to follow the development of these gardens.

-2 New schools have volunteered to host this initiative and joined in 2016.

-Finally, teachers asked Designing Hope to provide complement theoretical courses, and offered classroom for this purpose. They also increased the age groups involved, raising the number of children invoilved to 240.

They also gave more land, so the gardens can also provide fresh vegetable for the canteen.


Intervention in Lesotho

Project managers of Designing Hope in Swaziland and South Africa were invited to demonstrate permaculture tchniques in the St. Paul School in Leribe (Lesotho).
This school specialized in welcoming deaf people, wanted to develop a micro farm to enable students to acquire skills in agriculture so they could reintegrate their communities with a professional background.
