In this week’s episode research intern Patricia Baquero discusses The Community Garden Project in Nangabo, a small county in south central Uganda. The organization is partnering with the Nangabo sub-county Parents’ Association of Children with Disabilities (NAPACD) to identify and build relationships with families who have one or more children with a physical disability. The project provides the families with training and materials to cultivate household and community gardens to improve nutrition, health and livelihoods.
