Improve Livelihoods of 225 HIV-affected families

by Network for Ecofarming in Africa
Nov 3, 2010



Our project on Aid Livelihoods for 90 HIV/AIDS Kenyan families is going on very successfully. The beneficiaries have increased as we have incorporated other 6 families into starting up kitchen gardens and rearing of small livestock’s. We have embarked on organizing exposure visits for the beneficiaries, so as to expose them to farm and crop production practices which has been practiced by other food communities in different parts of the District. The beneficiaries had an opportunity to meet one another, share their experiences, exchange ideas as we encourage them to identify their priority areas for better collaboration when funds are available.

 The previous beneficiaries are increasing their farming activities through increased food production and biodiversity, increased small livestocks and this has ensured that their food and nutrition requirements are available at all times. They are earning income from the sales of surplus products like eggs, indigenous vegetables, rabbits and chicken, which they use to buy other basic requirements and ensure their children are well equipped with school requirements.

Some beneficiaries have joined self help groups, where they participate in revolving fund project, in which they save their money and they can also borrow loans to meet there financial needs.

The beneficiaries have gained confidence and interact freely with other members of the community, as they have learned to live positively and accept their status, but they have also understood that their status does not make them any lesser persons in the community.

We believe that together we can make a difference.
