Challenge

A confluence of factors has reduced poor girls into malnourished and starving conditions. This has to be ameliorated in order to secure their future and to develop vibrant local communities. Poor soil due to massive soil erosion and deforestation, frequent severe events, insurgency and the Coronavirus pandemic are conditions that resulted to this situation. The need to provide targeted support cannot be overemphasized.

Solution

We will provide direct nutrition assistance to girls who are malnourished and starving. We will also provide small, targeted livelihood support in order to sustain and develop local nutrition support. These will be vegetable gardening, the raising of small farm animals like chickens and pigs, flower production, handicrafts and crop processing among others. In so doing we ensure that girls are healthy and productive participants in community development.

Long-Term Impact

The nutrition and health of girls in poor villages is essential for the future of their families and the local communities. The need to provide direct intervention in order to alleviate starvation is very much needed and urgent. In so doing we ensure resilient communities.
