Lush UK has once again very generously funded Karama this April 2015! Lush UK’s Charity Pot provides funding for small grassroots groups that promote i.a. human rights. Remember Lush was one of the first to support the rooftop gardens in Deheishe! :)
This time, the money will be used to build another series of rooftop greenhouses with an emphasis on including youth. During training they will learn simple gardening AND food processing skills which will also enables them to sell their produce locally for extra income! Positively, this increases and encourages self-reliance and stimulates the local economy. As agricultural land is seized and harvests regularly damaged, producing on our roofs offers many opportunities.
As an extra gift: LUSH UK will also feature our project in their monthly magazin AND on their products! So if you are in the UK in May, make sure to pop into one of their shops and ask for the Charity Pot.
