We met Mr. Henderson on the Unlock Leadership Immersion Program in Malawi in November 2019.
Mr Henderson is 22 years old and is from Nsondole Epicentre. After receiving training from an Animator (local volunteer leader) trained by The Hunger Project, Mr Henderson began planting seeds in his garden.
Now, he proudly grows beans, peas, Chinese vegetables and tomatoes. Mr Henderson also sells the surplus vegetables that he has grown so that he can earn an income.
“The Hunger Project taught me to plant different vegetables, so it gives my family different nutrients and we do not live in hunger. Now I don’t need to buy vegetables from other people”, he said.
Mr. Henderson has also become a Nutrition Animator because he is passionate about passing on what he learnt to other community members including how to grow your own nutritious food and how to make compost manure.
Mr Henderson’s garden acts as a demonstration for his neighbours and community that they too, can transform their lives.
