Summary

Community-based health education workshops targeted at health-workers, home-based carers, chronic illness sufferers and their families, enabling them to take responsibility for their own health

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

With the vast majority of government health resources being heavily overburdened with the responsibility of delivering primary health care services, little time or resources are available to address the need for education and support relating to health and nutrition. This situation is particularly prevalent in impoverished urban and rural communities resulting in many vulnerable people being poorly equipped to understand or take responsibility for health-related issues.

How will this project solve this problem?

Mamelani Projects’ Wellness programme attempts to fill this gap by working with people at community level and encouraging them to be more informed about their health and available health services.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will not only lead to improved health among the participants, but because these participants are often responsible for feeding others and caring for children. The project will thus have a ripple effect, spreading healthy habits.
