Sindh government distributes kitchen gardening kits to the poor

Karachi: The Sindh government has started distributing free kitchen gardening kits to the poor of the province to resolve the issues of hunger and economic deprivation.

The beneficiaries of this scheme include poor women in the underdeveloped parts of the province. The kitchen gardening kits are being distributed through the Sindh Irrigated Agriculture Productivity Enhancement Project of the Sindh Agriculture Department.

###

Around 1,500 such kits have been distributed among the farmers of District Tharparkar alone where poverty has been widespread due to harsh weather and desert-like terrain of the area. The inhabitants of other districts of Sindh have been given 4,700 such kits.

###

A total of 10,100 kits will be provided all over the province under this initiative. Each kit comprises a spade, buckets, 200 litres water tank, water pipes, gardening trowel, vegetable seeds, and fertilizer for two growing seasons. All these items are being provided free of charge.

The Sindh Agriculture Department has availed the services of different non-governmental organisations to conduct proper survey to know about the presence of landless and deserving peasants for the purpose.

The beneficiaries of the project said that this timely initiative would go a long way in lessening their economic hardships that had become aggravated since last one year due to coronavirus pandemic.

They said the articles contained in the gardening kits were all useful for them to utilise whatever piece of land available to them to grow vegetables for their own food requirements and also to sell them in the market.
