Women's Home Gardens (Tax Deductible)

Your donation to this project will improve the health and nutrition of children and families of tea workers on five estates by improving home gardening skills and knowledge.

Over the 5 years of this project, which will target 5 estates, 15 families per estate will benefit from the $5000/annum which Tradewinds has committed to providing PWG.

Our partner for this project PWG, is a grass roots organisation working in six tea plantations in the Hatton region. Its aim is to enable women in the plantations to understand their reality and encourage, form and train them to be involved in the transformation of their reality.  

The funds will be used for:

  • Weekly estate visits by the fieldworker (a former tea worker with expertise in organic gardening) to facilitate women's group to discuss progress, distribute seeds, share knowledge, encourage progress, and deal with challenges that arise.
  • Monthly training activities for participants.
  • The wage for 1 woman to attend training at the PWG Centre in home gardening.
  • Providing participants with basic needs such as: quality seeds, healthy vegetable plants and gardening tools.
  • assisting participants to find traditional chemical free pesticides
  • training participants to make their own compost bins and to use animal manure for fertiliser.


Would you like to make a regular or large one off donation to this project? Contact Us and we'll get in touch for further details. Tradewinds is supporting this project because it is about improving opportunities for producer communities by working with communities so that they can help themselves.
