How are the Resources Used
Knowledgeable and skilled people are needed to make Slow Food’s Gardens in Africa a reality, including young leaders who can motivate the local communities. The donation requested by Slow Food to support the activities in Africa is not only used to buy tools, wheelbarrows, watering cans and fencing but also to pay for the work and training of the African leaders who coordinate the communities.
A part of the donation is used for monitoring the gardens already realized, to strengthen the local network through exchanges between communities and events as well as to guarantee study grants for young people, to help them travel and meet other communities. Mapping work on territories to safeguard and promote local biodiversity is also included.
Slow Food receives a share which is necessary to cover the costs of the technical coordination of the project (providing the garden guidelines, identifying agronomists, creating teaching materials, enabling networking of the leaders of the various countries and managing the exchange of information among the network of donors and African communities) for communication purposes and to evaluate the project’s results.
