Improve Livelihoods of 225 HIV-affected families

Report on food & nutrition security interventions.

As the project progresses, so are the number of established kitchen gardens, fruit and vegetable stalls, benefiting about 200 households. Previous beneficiaries have embarked on diversifying their activities especially in areas of marketing their farm produce to earn income, which they use to pay school fees, buy school uniforms and supplement family needs. One great success of this project has been the inclusion of rabbit meat in the beneficiaries diet, because traditionally it was consumed by young boys, but through awareness forums and nutrition information the households are benefiting more from rabbits which they are also selling to other members of the community hence creating awareness on the importance of good food choices at minimal costs. We wish to thank all our donors who have contributed immensely towards the success of this project.
