Challenge

In Kenya, more than a quarter of children under the age of five have stunted growth due to malnutrition. Children from low-income areas and especially those with disabilities are the most affected. This poses health challenges such as obesity, stunted growth, Rickets, and others. Parents of children with such challenges do not have stable sources of income to enable them to provide for their children.

Solution

The clean plate nutrition project provides food packages to homes with children suffering from malnutrition and with a special focus on homes that have children with disabilities and other disorders. The project focuses on teaching agricultural skills to the parents and helps them set up mini gardens and plant nutritious vegetables.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide food packages continuously every quarter to over 300 families and teach them skills to set up home gardens to grow nutritious vegetables and foods. There will be a better understanding of nutrition based on the local community's cultures and just using the foods within the community to provide balanced diets meals.
