Challenge

Healthcare delivery in rural areas clearly depends on transport.This project will solve the problems of high costs involved in hiring a motor cycle to do field monitoring of children health i the community.

Solution

The micro project will purchase a brand new small motor bike to enable a field worker visit the children in the community, our project trained 50 mothers on good feeding practices among children 0-59 months, all these need to be reached to see the progress.

Long-Term Impact

A motor bike in the community will enable the staff report on the issues of child health as soon as possible, children are a focus of our intervention in the community.Availability of a motor bike use policy will enable us use the bike effectively.
