Sustainable Food Project for Children in Kenya


During this difficult time of drought, children in the American Foundation for Children with AIDS's programs have been affected. While we have helped keep them alive and healthy through the AIDS pandemic, it is tragic that hunger would take them. With our sustainable projects, we establish long-term solution through community gardens, sisal production and trainings for the communities we serve. The specialized training is for gardening in arid areas which receive little rain. Join us

Kenya has been experiencing a severe drought for various years now. This has affected children who have survived AIDS, but who are needy because food in Kenya has doubled in price and has become scarse. Children who take medicine must have food in their bellies in order to not get nauseus. So, food becomes a form of medicine, which is life saving.


While delivering food is good in some cases, it is better to develop a sustainable solution which can be carried on for years to come. By training a master gardener/trainer of trainers in a specialized type of gardening for arid areas, we start the road towards sustainability. He will train child headed households, guardians and community volunteers. We will also produce sisal, giving work to several hundred guardians, ensuring the children will eat and return to school.

Long-Term Impact

HIV+ children and their guardians will receive huge benefits from these projects, including: jobs and income, much needed nutritious food, training in how to prepare nutritious meals, training in how to grow food with no water, the ability to obtain seeds for an established seed bank, funds from food sold, savings from food consumed from the garden, and the knowledge that they can take care of themselves during a drought.
