Family gardens in the Sahara desert (Willem Van Cotthem)

Thanks to an initiative of UNICEF ALGERIA in 2005-2007 a huge number of family gardens (kitchen gardens) have been created in the Tindouf region (S.W. Algeria).

Here is one of my pictures taken in October 2007.

UNICEF stopped this successful program in 2008.
