Challenge

90% of the households have at least a malnourished child in our community, and the very households do not have good feeding mechanisms, 05% of the visited households had vegetable gardens, the number is still very low, and majority either reported that they did not know how to make them or did not have money to set up one. Mothers have been trained on good feeding mechanism but there must be continuity in the programme by provision of vegetable seeds to them.

Solution

Mothers will be able to feed their children with variety of vegetables like Leeks, Lettuce, carrots, cucumber, cabbage, eggplant, etc. A nutritionist recommended choosing a variety of vegetables, both raw and cooked including coloured orange, red, dark green and yellow vegetables including allium vegetables such as onions and garlic

Long-Term Impact

The 50 mothers that have been trained on good feeding mechanisms will benefit, the beneficiaries will be able to give seeds and vegetables to their neighbors too and have more for sale to the near by markets for money to enable them take care of their children
