Challenge

Meeting the nutrition requirements of pregnant mothers and children under 5 has become a major global challenge. Nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 are attributable to under nutrition. The current malnutrition levels hinder Uganda's human, social, and economic development. In Mpigi District, the majority of the households sampled had high calorific diet which included root tubers and cereals but greatly lacking in vitamins and proteins.

Solution

This project enhances communities' nutrition and livelihood security by means of building community's capacity to sustainably manage kitchen gardens. It will also increase the knowledge of mothers and care takers about the different food groups and how they can be combined to make a balanced diet

Long-Term Impact

The project is using the whole family approach in order to enhance on its adoption by different social groups and broaden awareness, develop skills and team work in the households. It therefore will work with the men, women and the youth alike. Although there is a slight likelihood of more women participating, the project will encourage the involvement in all activities of wives, and their husbands .
