School Gardens & Forests

With over a third of KAASO's students paying no school fees, KAASO’s gardens and forests play a vital role in helping keep the school afloat, assisting both with feeding and income-generation. Since KAASO’s founding students planted the school’s first gardens and eucalyptus forest in 1999, KAASO has expanded its reach to encompass multiple garden and forestry projects. Thanks to these projects, KAASO does not have to buy firewood and much of the children’s food comes from the school’s own gardens.
