Summary

This project will provide livelihood support to in form of goats to 200 HIV and AIDs widows living with 4 orphans per household whom they have to support with basics of life amidst inadequate income.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

80% of widows face: food insecurity, limited awareness to better farming methods, poor nutrition, Limited access to improved planting materials, the high poverty levels, the impact of HIV/AIDS and unemployment among mothers and their children. SDA has mobilized women into groups that are a potential to active participation in the project. We have also undertaken group farming.This grant will therefore expand our local efforts through support with 200 goats and 40000 improved banana suckers

How will this project solve this problem?

Support 200 widows with 200 goats, 40000 banana suckers, train them in integrated farming for sustained banana - goat organic farming

Potential Long Term Impact
