Muslim Aid supports Model School Gardening Project to encourage Self-cultivation under the Livelihood and Food Security Program.
Muslim Aid continues its efforts to help the vulnerable and affected families in the country due to the current economic crises by supporting 5 schools in the Trincomalee district under the model school gardening project. MASL has been supporting vulnerable households in a number of districts in the country to encourage self-cultivation under the livelihood and food security program.
Muslim Aid believes that Sri Lanka, as an agricultural-based country, should promote, encourage and inculcate youth involvement from a young age and provide the necessary subject knowledge and technical know-how to use mulching systems, sprinklers, drip irrigation systems, and greenhouses from the secondary schooling age itself, so that students will engage in cultivational activities which will motivate them to use in their homes.
Under its livelihood and food security program, MASL supports capable but vulnerable beneficiaries in urban and rural areas to cultivate food for consumption purposes as well as to earn through selling their extra harvest. Muslim Aid also is implementing a community gardening project where community members will engage in community gardening in familiar but safe places and cultivate vegetation as needed.
