Challenge

With a $100 donation, we will buy 2 sacs of beans and 4 sacs of corn from local farmers in 1 harvest, working 1/2 acre of land in Thomonde. The grains produce 660 lbs of AK-1000 or 2640 servings. This will provide a fortified meal to 88 patients for an entire month.

Solution

The farmers will be encouraged to grow their crops twice a year. 75% of the product will be distributed to patients on ART in 4 clinics in the area. 25% will be sold at low cost to an active woman in a family affected by HIV as a micro enterprise.

Long-Term Impact

Local farmers will have a ready market for their products. AK-1000 will fill nutritional deficits of HIV patients by providing access to fortified, nutritious food. Their families will be supported through the income generated by the enterprise.
