Seeds are a sacred metaphor for life and renewal. The Gift of Seeds will bring the metaphor to life by exhibiting solidarity in action with our partners in the Assumption Parish in Mazabuka, Zambia. This gift will grow opportunities for young people that do not have many chances to break out of the poverty cycle and will help sustain the Community Vegetable Garden in the Youth Centre, teaching them skills on growing their own food as well as improving the health and nutrition of the youth involved, their families, and the broader Assumption Parish Community. Profit made from the community garden will go back into the Parish Youth Centrem which will, in turn, be put towards further skills training and youth development initiatives like tailoring, business management, computer skills and even chicken rearing.
This gift is a powerful show of solidarity, directly promoting Sustainable Development Goal 15 – Life on Land.
