Evaline Poni is putting her studies into practice working and can be seen above working with a team of students to create a kitchen garden. She says:
We were establishing a kitchen garden for vegetables and plants like beans, soya beans, amaranth. It was one of the practical papers I did in the last exams.
The diets of refugees are very poor, more so since the food rations were cut a year ago.
Evaline is working towards a Diploma in Home Economics and Community Nutribution. Growing vegetables and showing others how this is achieved, along with advice on cooking to maintain nutrients is a great way to improve health and well-being amongst refugee communities and help prevent illnesses caused by malnutrition.
We wish her well with her continued studies.
