Challenge

Moroto district in the semi-arid zone of Karamoja suffers from intense hot seasons, inadequate rainfall (less than 800mm per annum) and unfertile soils that have led to extreme low food production, hunger and malnutrition. Children often receive only 1 meal a day (below WHO recommendations). That has been responsible for high child mortality, increased disease burden, poverty & destitution of children on streets of Moroto.

Solution

The nutritious foods will save lives of malnourished children, raise dietary options and increase food intake to 3 meals a day. This will improve child growth, boost immunity and support their development. The farm tools (hand hoes, pangas and ox-ploughs) will boost food production in their households to reinforce the supplied relief foods and create sustainable food security.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide nutritious foods and increase feeding frequencies to 200 malnourished children that will boost their immunity, save lives, reduce vulnerability to severe acute malnutrition secure their healthy well being. The dietary feeding of the children will reduce the disease burden and allow their parents to engage in diversified sustainable agricultural production for consumption and market to provide basics for child welfare.
