Progress Report on Community Health Interventions.

The project has put more emphasis on capacity building the households in areas of environmental cleanliness, conservation, tree nursery establishment and management. The neem trees that were planted are growing very well, and it is important that the households start income generating activities by nurturing the seedlings and selling them to government agencies for reforestation and to other community members since the tree is a very good mosquito repellent and in liquid form its dry leaves are good for soil fertilization. So, we are not only looking at eradicating malaria but also empowering the community to be sustainable, to be able to cope with some of the challenges in future. More bed nets have been distributed, to households that had not benefited, but more are required and funds to increase the tree nurseries production. We thank our donors for their continued support, and looking for more collaboration.
