Why run for ActionAid?

Purity Njigi is 15 years old and lives in Makima, Central Kenya. She is a member of her school's Junior Farmer Club.

ActionAid works with communities in Kenya to promote sustainable agriculture. 

Purity says: "I have learnt how to be a real farmer with this project. I know when to plant, how to cultivate, when to water the plants and when to harvest. I also know which vegetables and beans are better for which season."
