Kenya orphan grows vegetables to help pay for school

Sarah C
Hi-My name is Sarah C. I am 14 and attend secondary school, form one. Life is hard since my father died from an asthmatic attack. My mother earns less than a dollar each day by farming. I am learning about gardening at an orphanage where I planted and harvested pumpkins, tomatoes, cowpeas and watermelons. The garden project was sponsored by Hope In Action. The food I grew helped us have more to eat, and we had a little left to sell. I saved some seeds and will plant a bigger garden soon. I want to sell more vegetables so I can pay my school fees. There is a computer at the orphanage and I hope to hear from you. Maybe we can be friends.
