Urban Gardens Help Women with HIV

USAID supports an Urban Gardens program in Ethiopia to provide vulnerable and HIV-infected women with the tools, land, and knowledge to plant vegetable gardens, feed their families, and sell the produce to increase household income. The program trains women in nutrition, composting, vegetable growing, irrigation, proper hygiene, and HIV/AIDS awareness, and workers with degrees in agriculture assist the women in planting and maintaining their gardens.
