Homestead Food Production Program - Cambodia



The program trains 1,000 poor families to develop farms and gardens that provide a year round supply of healthy food and an income source. The focus is on communities affected by HIV/AIDS.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Cambodia has the highest prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Asia. In affected communities, this program teaches rural families how to create gardens so they have healthy food to help their immune system, limit weight loss and improve strength. Communities are educated about good nutrition and HIV/AIDS. The gardens give families a source of income through the sale of surplus goods. As one mother says: "Now we have regular fresh vegetables and fruits, better health and extra income."

How will this project solve this problem?

Establish model community farms to train families and provide seeds, seedlings and chicks; Teach families to develop and maintain their own gardens; Provide nutrition and HIV/AIDS education; Train partner organizations to provide on-going support

Potential Long Term Impact

The program will give 10,000 people improved health, gardening and poultry-raising skills, information about about HIV/AIDs and nutrition, and increased household incomes. The program helps vulnerable people stay healthy.
