Challenge

Malawi had a dry spell this year. This has left many households harvest little or nothing. Families that are keeping orphans are usually worst victims of hunger because they have extra load of children to care for. Some of these families are widow headed, elderly headed and in worse situations some are child headed. If unsupported the children's education is affected as the need forces them to go for work for food; child labor.

Solution

The project will provide relief maize to the orphan keeping families, covering the lean months of January, February, and March.

Long-Term Impact

More than 2000 orphans and other children from the beneficiary families will grow healthy and stay in school. Instances of child labor will be avoided. Families will spend their time working on their gardens and produce own food for next year. The orphans and their guardians will enjoy peace and freedom of mind, hence make stable decisions. If guardians are widows, they will not think of offering their bodies for sex to get food there by prevent spread or contracting HIV and AIDS.
