The Lusikisiki HAT Team chose to meet an identified need in their community when they decided to establish a food garden. The team decided to do their part by establishing a food garden for Gosso orphanage, a children’s home in their community. The team prepared and planted the garden and maintains it with the children’s help, who assist and water the vegetables regularly. The team does not take any of the harvest, which is instead used to prepare healthy meals for the children. The caretaker at the orphanage says they are very grateful to the team because they are now able to serve the children more nutritious meals.
