METTA GEHA – HORTICULTURE
KANPETLET TOWN, CHIN STATE 2014-CURRENT
Back in 2014 our horticulture project at this remote orphanage in the Chin Hills started with seed funding for a kitchen garden. Each time we return the garden has been expanded a little more – a coffee plant nursery is the latest addition.
The manager of the project – Stephan – changes the crops every season so the garden provides important nutrients for the 50 children who live here.
He also has one eye on the commercial viability of the project, adding over the past 18 months banana trees, sugar cane and now coffee. We can’t wait to see what pops up next!
