Challenge

While most Kenyan families face poverty and hunger, those affected by HIV/AIDS are especially at risk. They have the additional responsibility of taking care and feeding the infected person(s) who require even more nutritional attention. Network for Ecofarming in Africa will equip 225 critically affected families in Molo district, Kenya, with skills and materials to enable them to produce balanced and nutritious food, and earn extra income

Solution

We will provide materials (seeds, fertilizers, tools, livestock) plus training on sustainable agriculture (indigenous crops, small livestock farming, food preservation) and basic business skills like bookkeeping.

Long-Term Impact

Helped out of the vicious circle, 225 families become self-sufficient with recovered dignity. Income generated in first year provides inputs for next season. They will share knowledge and skills acquired to their children and other community members.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
