Get to Know an SOS Child: Peter
This is Peter. He’s 11 years old and lives in Basse, The Gambia. Like many children who grow up in insecure circumstances, Peter cares a lot about the food supply in his community and has already decided he wants to be a farmer when he grows up. The SOS Children’s Village in Basse provides a community garden, where children like Peter can learn the science of plant biology and practical agricultural techniques in a hands-on context. In the evenings after school, Peter often works late in the gardens, keeping a watchful eye over the health of the plants.
