Challenge

In DRC, more than 43% of children suffer from chronic malnutrition. In the Kalo region, the Medical Office reports a rate of 8% for acute malnutrition and 1.5% for severe malnutrition. The consumption of meat is very rare and is done on very rare occasions. To lower these rates, our non-profit have begun a consultation with families and traditional leaders on the issues of under 12 years old malnutrition. This project is to anticipate the improvement of their diet food by a greater contribution.

Solution

The project puts emphasis on poultry farming to increase access to a varied and balanced diet. This will help restore the nutritional status of children, improve their diet by a greater intake of animal protein deficiency and enable them to return to school. The home gardens project combined with this one will allow children to eat meals consisting of products from the fields.

Long-Term Impact

80 children, girls and boys under 12 will benefit from this project. Their health and nutritional status will be improved. They will be able to return to school. In the long term, the project will be redesigned to integrate the ecological agriculture component to help farmers improve their practices and increase agricultural productivity. The household will have varied access to food and ensure better care of their children. Children will eat meals consisting of products from the fields.
