Challenge

Every year, flooding and loss of valuable agriculture land to erosion occurs, making it difficult for families to survive. Agricultural practices need to be adapted to these conditions to increase yields. High incidence of disease and limited healthcare access skyrockets rates of infant, child, and maternal mortality. Over 1500 families currently participate in this project, helping improve their living conditions and reduce malnutrition.

Solution

Organize 1500 women into groups to develop savings & long-run stability. Trained peer educators provide cultivation & healthcare support. 1500 families receive medical care, 300 women receive credit & financial support, 125 women receive natal care.

Long-Term Impact

The project ensures food security and healthcare for 1500 women farmers and impoverished families. By increasing savings, income-generating activities, sustainable farming, and improving health access, women and families become self-sufficient.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
