Establishing a sustainable garden right from the very FIRST SEED not only contributes to a greener future but also assists orphanages in curbing their expenditure on groceries.

Objective:

The “First Seed” Program addresses food security by working with Orphanages to adopt sustainable practices for growing crops and plantations on arable land. The Campaign introduces the latest farming tools and know-how lessons to support the first batch of 3 orphanage centers developing sustainable plantations for daily food staples. The objective is to Transform or expand arable land to become a small sustainable agriculture food production center for growing edible crops and vegetation gardening.

Campaign Summary:

As the economic prices increase, many things are getting more expensive. Thus, we should think of ways for orphanages to lessen their daily operating expenditures and enrich them with sustainable solutions. Therefore, the Foundation organizes a “First Seed” campaign, a Sustainable Development Project. The idea behind the program is for the orphanage partner to provide a garden where the participants can plant healthy organic fruits and vegetables. The primary goal is to reduce orphanage dependency on kitchen expenses while saving money. The program also aims to help orphaned children be healthy by absorbing nutrients and natural vitamins from organic fruits and vegetables grown at their sites.

Furthermore, the program targets orphaned children to have a place where they can spend their time to freshen their minds from all the anxieties that they are feeling. In addition, the participating orphanages will receive the necessary support structures to operate the garden effectively. Qualified volunteering farmers we have brought into our program will also assist them with the proposed sustainable gardening plan. 

The Mary K. Yap Foundation believes that the FirstSeed campaign is an impactful program, which focuses on developing orphan children with their skills to help them in their daily lives and future endeavors.
