Challenge

There are currently over 10,000 children in Rachuonyo East Sub-County suffering from hunger and malnutrition. Despite the efforts of their caregivers to feed them with adequate quality foodstuffs, the problem persists due to the extreme poverty experienced by majority of the residents of this Sub-County.

Solution

Ogola Community Development Program provides meals to primary school children. The children's women-caregivers and the youth are trained on small business management skills. They are also supported to start and operate non-farm small scale social enterprises to provide regular incomes to their households.

Long-Term Impact

Provision of financial and technical support to 600 women to start and operate micro-enterprises will lead to their active participation in owning and successfully operating nonfarm micro and small scale social enterprises. This will, in the long-run, transform the current prevailing peasant mentality to business orientation, resulting into very high saving rates for further investment. The end product is remarkable economic growth which will enable them create a poverty-free society.
