Empowering local women's group - AK1000 Nutrition

$150 $9,850
Raised Remaining


Using locally grown grains to produce a fortified, nutritional food product for HIV patients on Antiretroviral Therapy.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

With a $100 donation, we will buy 2 sacks of beans and 4 sacks of corn from local farmers working 1/2 acre of land in Thomonde. The grains will be processed and produce 660 lbs of AK-1000 or 2640 servings.

How will this project solve this problem?

Local human resources, farmers and merchant women will package and promote the product as well as supply the grains used in the preparation of the AK1000. Patient support groups and health committees will participate in product demonstrations.

Potential Long Term Impact

New jobs will be created in Thomonde. The product will also be sold at low cost, as a micro enterprise, to an active woman in a family that has been affected by HIV. Through this, the woman will generate income that will help her support the family
