Ending Malnutrition in Tanzania, Starting at School
For O’Brien School for the Maasai teacher Saphi Yohana, growing a garden isn’t just a nice thing to do—it’s a way keep kids in the classroom. Most of the school’s students come from the Maasai tribe, once an exclusively nomadic people who traditionally eat milk, meat, blood and fat. As increased droughts have made this diet less and less attainable, malnourishment has spread. By providing two veggie-based meals a day, the O’Brien School is now greeting energized, happy students each morning and sending them home each afternoon to spread a passion for produce.
