Project "One Store, One School, One Farm" to raise awareness of a healthy and balanced diet.
China Youth Development Foundation (CYDF) is a recognized and award-winning network in China, whose mission is to promote the social inclusion of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. The association helps them to find an employment prospect, and educates young people about environmental protection, education, health issues and the civic service.
The project "One Store, One School, One Farm" aims to bring together three structures close to each other, to raise awareness about the benefit of a better nutrition. Farms host children and organize workshops in order for them to discover plants, gardening, compost, and educate themselves on the senses, the life cycle of the plants, their aromas, their nutritional quality, etc.
