“FAO's assistance enabled us to grow enough wheat to return our debts, put food on the table and set some seed aside for the next year,” says 38-eight year old Fatima Anayatallah, a project beneficiary from the village of Mohammad Soomro in Jacobabad District of Sindh.

Sharing the joys and happiness of office backyard garden

“I am amazed to see vegetables grown in a bag,” said 15 year-old Asad Ullah, student of the Anjumun Faiz ul Islam’ Madrassa in Rawalpindi, about a homestead garden FAO grows on its premises in Islamabad. “I will take the bag I have received from FAO to my home in Muzaffarabad so my siblings can grow vegetables in it,” added the youth.

Asad was one of ten madrassa students who came to visit FAO office in Islamabad on a hot summer afternoon. Together with their religious studies teacher, Mr. Mohammad Shuaib, the students met FAO Representative in Pakistan Mr. Patrick T. Evans, learned about FAO activities in the country, and joined FAO team in harvesting the vegetables grown in FAO homestead garden. “We are very pleased to share our garden with students,” noted Patrick T. Evans, FAO Representative in Pakistan. “We hope that these youths will return again and again to enjoy the harvest of other vegetables and fruits, as well as to learn how to grow a similar garden at their school.”
