Summary

The Anne Kagwe Center for Women & Children provides nutrition support for pregnant women, lactating mothers, and children under five years in Kenya. The center also provides breakfast porridge (uji) for children in the Early Education Program at Kimbo-Githurai Primary School. Additionally, the center empowers women through skills training, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy. Whenever funds allow, we provide small business grants to help women build income to support their families.

Challenge

In Kenya, malnutrition and water and sanitation-related diseases are one of the leading causes of death for children under the age of five. Disparities in the quality, accessibility and affordability of food and healthcare remain a major challenge, hence the most vulnerable and deprived mothers and children are denied their right to survive and thrive.

Solution

The mission of the Anne Kagwe Center for Women and Children is to increase healthcare access and reduce morbidity and mortality caused by malnutrition. We provide: - Health promotion - Nutrition education - Food baskets - Hygiene kits - Women empowerment. Our signature program ensures that mothers leaving our program are healthy and well nourished, and provides them a way to sustain themselves financially so they can afford food and healthcare for their families.

Long-Term Impact

Reduced proportion of children five years and below who are underweight or stunted - Increased percentage of children exclusively breastfed in the first six months - Increased proportion of households consuming fortified food - Reduced proportion of pregnant women who are anemic - Decreased percentage of children under five who are vitamin A deficient - Decreased number of households with water borne illnesses - Increment in nutritional and WASH knowledge among households.
