Summary

Most children of dirt-poor farmers living in the mountain barrios in Zamboanga del Norte are always hungry due to the lingering effect of the drought caused by the El Nino phenomenon. They scavenge fruits, leaves and roots of plants in order to survive. This project will provide them with nutritious food as well as help their families with increasing food supply by providing farming inputs.

Challenge

Children of dirt-poor farmers living in the mountains of Zamboanga del Norte and belonging to the Subanen tribe are always hungry and malnourished. With our food supply for them and provision of farming inputs for their families we intend to improve their nutrition and health status, enabling them to survive in their harsh conditions.

Solution

We will provide immediate food aid comprising rice, legumes, meat, fish and milk as well as farm inputs such as fertilizer, seeds and small farm tools for their families.

Long-Term Impact

The El Nino is not a regular occurrence but comes every 7-9 years or so. If our beneficiaries will be able to survive this El Nino occurrence and be successful in raising their crops again, then hunger and malnutrition will be abetted.
