ENACTUS club visited El Roi children's home in Kayole on Madaraka day.El roi children home,whose director is called Susan Owour, faces many challenges, including lack of enough resources to sustain the home.It’s with this back ground that ENACTUS university of Nairobi thought it was prudent for the home to have a stable source of food supply, and this was only possible if the home produced its own food.
Through partnership with Mazingira Institute Susan was trained on many methods in Urban Farming such as sack/container gardening and stair case gardening. With the training, Enactus members,Susan and some of the children in the home went on to use waste cement bags and sacks to grow food crops such as Vegetables, Kunde, sweet potato, Beet roots, Bamboo seedlings etc. The sacks are place outside the house on the balconies which the land lord was generous to give to Susan for this initiative.
