Nurture Africa campaigns to support poverty striken families in Uganda access healthcare, education, nutrition & sustainable income generation. This project will seek to provide: - 50 families with treated mosquito nets (essential in preventing malaria) - 25 children with access to Primary Healthcare - 25 families with nutritional support - 25 people with access to HIV care & treatment - 30 most at risk mothers with Maternity care - 10 families with income generation support
HIV and lack of access to basic healthcare services are significant drivers of poverty in Nansana Municipality. Nurture Africa provides access to these services in order to support and improve the health status of affected families. Good nutritional intake is also vital in supporting a HIV infected person as medication can prove ineffective unless a healthy diet is maintained. Parents lacking an income source struggle to provide the most basic of needs and are destined to remain in poverty
This project will support Nurture Africa to provide 150 families living in poverty with access to healthcare, vital nutrition and income generation interventions that will enable them to improve their health status, provide food security and support parents/gaurdians through business & financial management training and the provision of micro-finance loans, to work themselves out of poverty through the establishment of sustainable small scale businesses.
The project targets the support and elevation of 150 poverty striken families in Uganda to a self-sufficient livelihood
