Step 3: Gave an Impact Description 

‘The STEM Garden Initiative is a proposal to improve household food security and reduce hunger in Nigeria while fighting the climate crisis. The initiative will establish STEM-based school gardens and train pupils on how to establish backyard gardens at home. The produce from the gardens will provide nutritious food, improve health, concentration and retention in school, and achieve a cleaner environment.

The initiative is aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2 (Zero Hunger) ,12 (Sustainable Consumption and Production) and 13 (Climate action). It is also consistent with the Nigerian government’s National Policy on Education, which emphasizes the importance of STEM education and environmental sustainability.

The initiative is expected to have a positive impact on the lives of children, families, and communities in Nigeria. It will help to improve food security, nutrition, health, education, and the environment as well as ensure children are building skills across all STEM disciplines.

Furthermore, it can help to create a sense of community and belonging among students, teachers, and parents. They can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, and improve overall mental health of the beneficiaries.’
