Malele Ngalu - Young Farm

Malele Ngalu, Young Farm

Date grant awarded: 4/5/2017

Malele Ngalu and George Omedo co-founded Young Farm to resource students – especially girls – from rural and semi-urban communities in Africa to sustainably farm grain, fruit, and vegetables for nutritious consumption and sale into local and export markets – pioneering the use of aquaponics technologies in schools.

The farm allows students to consume a balanced diet and the sale of produce enable girls from disadvantaged backgrounds to pay their school fees and afford a year’s supply of sanitary pads.
