One of the big emphases of this project is on child health and nutrition. Poverty and lack of information mean that many of the children are unhealthy when they first enroll in school.
Through the project however, children receive supplementary nutrition twice a day, as well as immunizations and health check-ups at the pre-school centres and schools. In addition, mothers receive training on child development, health and nutrition issues. These are followed up with home visits.
In this way the children and the parents learn the value of health and nutrition, which otherwise receives little attention.
In addition to being requisite for a healthy human life, it also means the children are in the best position to benefit from their education.
Last year 991 children received supplementary nutrition, care and protection, and their growth was monitored on a regular basis, including specific programmes to treat 70 malnourished children.
I am pleased to share with you these pictures recently received from the project of health check-ups and nutrition workshops.
Thank you for allowing this fantastic work to continue.
