Summary

Developmental Stunting affects 60% of all children under the age of 18yrs in South Africa since the inception of Covid. We will improve food security, nutritional levels, improve healthy food choices, educate the children as to dietary choices as well as reducing the impact of stunting physically, emotionally and intellectually. This project will be sustainable and can continue throughout the lifetime of the children.

Challenge

Covid has severely affected food security and nourishment particularly for the 66% of South Africans (particularly women and children) who live below the poverty line and in extreme poverty means the growth stunting of children has reached 60% nationally. If we help one child to eat better, they then perform well at school; pay attention to learning. They are receiving the nourishment their growing bodies require to develop cognitively, intellectually, emotionally and physically.

Solution

Short term this project will resolve the stunting issue for the 100children through the distribution of Epap a fortified maize product for those most at risk in our program. Secondly, by building and creating long term door sized gardens. The children will be taught how to create gardens, harvesting the vegetables and seeds for the future without using costly chemicals such as fertilizer, composting, natural bug repellents as well as making good food choices and correct cooking procedures.

Long-Term Impact

In sustainable permaculture food gardens, 66% of the people (particularly women and children) live below the poverty line and in extreme poverty. 100 children will be able to grow effectively; study and learn cognitively; develop emotionally and become whole contributing adults of South Africa. The immediate need, due to Covid is now. Our children need a sustainable way to survive NOW. This project will ease Food Insecurity in the poorest of the poor households.
