The Guyanese Making a Difference Foundation is soon expected to launch its “Lets Grow a Kitchen Garden” initiative, aimed at providing essentials for those who cannot afford during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic facing Guyana and the rest of the world.

Twenty-four-year-old Neermala Ramsaywack, the founder of the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) revealed that the foundation was launched on April 9, 2019 with the intention of eliminating poverty by creating opportunities for the vulnerable.

In doing so, the NGO has so far created job opportunities and facilitated training exercises on simple ways of survival. It has also taught persons to adapt a sense of determination and commitment towards their goals.

According to Ramsaywack, “I believe that now is indeed the perfect time for me to put my initiative “Lets Grow a Kitchen Garden” into action since I believe this can and will provide for those of who can’t afford to maintain themselves and family during this pandemic and crisis that we have been facing.”

The woman went on to state that she has been working on this initiative from the conception of the NGO, adding that it is something that will allow persons to take home an income.

“It will also encourage persons to develop healthy eating habits. We will not only be providing the plants,seedlings and garden tool to the vulnerable persons, but we will also be training them on how to take care of their own kitchen garden,” the young woman added.

With the foregoing in mind, Ramsaywack is calling on persons to support the initiative by donating garden tools,seedlings,plants and fertilizers.
