Community-led development initiatives that are making a difference

August 2011
Future Times;2011, Vol. 3, p8
The article presents information on the community-led initiative, the Project Sunshine, designed by the Great Start Taita Children's Gardening Club. After planting sunflowers in 2010, the garden club saw the three-fold achievement of educating themselves on the role of bees in flower propagation, of beautifying their environment and of generating fellowship and goodwill among the residents. Project Sunshine packs have been distributed so that the activity can be replicated in other communities.
