You are transforming the community

Hi,

Thanks so much for your generous donations to this project, since 2017 Mountains of Hope has set up vegetable kitchen gardens in over 500 families, this year alone, this project targets 600 families, your donations are helping us reach out to 20 families in Mpigi families, when families grow their own vegetables, they are enabled to feed their children with a vitamin rich nutritious meal daily, this minimizes on sicknesses caused by lack of vitamins in the body, families are also able to sell some vegetables to raise money for other basic household items, your donations count, they help to save and transform a life in Uganda.

Poor nutrition in the first 1,000 days of a child’s life can also lead to stunted growth, which is irreversible and associated with impaired cognitive ability and reduced school and work performance.

The current malnutrition levels hinder Uganda’s human, social, and economic development. Although the country has made tremendous progress in economic growth and poverty reduction over the past 21 years, its progress is reducing malnutrition remains very slow.

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, 80% of the families had a poor meal without proteins in their diet, 20% had maize and matooke. The sample results above depict that most families do not have a balanced diet in their nutrition.

Will you continue supporting this project?
