In rural Burkina Faso, UNICEF, in partnership with the European Union, is teaching women to grow vitamin-rich vegetables. “Before the garden, I just used to cultivate the same foods as other women around here, and it was very difficult,” says Kientega Zourata, who has seven children. “But with the garden, I’ve become financially independent. We eat the fruit and vegetables from the garden, I can help the family financially, and I still have my own money to buy clothes for the children and to pay for their education.”
