What happens in the pink garden

Updates from Kenya and the magnificent Mutanu Pink Garden socio-educational project, that is allowing twenty women to grow vegetables in a greenhouse and then sell them at the local market.

In the months of June and July 2021 we started two small training courses for our women: one concerning agricultural techniques and one on opportunities related to microcredit.

The women wanted to be taught in the Kikamba language and none of them have access to digital means of communication, but with paper and pen and lots of lessons in the field the course is proceeding at full speed and we hope to soon see the fruits, in every sense of the word!

The goal is that one day the project will lead these women towards complete autonomy.

Sister Federica, our field contact person, told us that at this time Kenya, sadly, is in the midst of a wave of Covid which is mercilessly killing many people. Even if Kenya was more prepared to face the pandemic, we would still have to deal with the lack of resources and facilities.

Sister Federica is a doctor who runs a mobile clinic, and she wrote to us: “Every time we organize the transfer of a patient to the hospital, we know that it will be a mere matter of luck, depending on the availability or not of oxygen. Well, God help us. The situation is truly dramatic. However, we have decided not to stop and we are trying, respecting the necessary protocols, to take our small steps".

After the maintenance work of the past months, many new tomatoes, onions and peppers should arrive soon.

“We face many difficulties, Sister Federica confessed to us, but we can say that this project is fantastic. Our women are proud to be part of it and make this pink garden the meaning of their days. Valter would be proud of them, I'm sure! MUTANU in name and in fact. There is so much joy in this pink garden".

Make Mutanu ever more luxuriant and help the women who work there achieve autonomy. Thanks to you their life will really be better! Please donate today!
