Tackling lack of nutrition through market gardens

By Antony Kingsley | Chief Executive Officer

WellFound remains steadfast and unwavering in its dedication to serving the remote villages of Guinea Bissau as we continue our mission to advance agriculture and end hunger. Nutrition remains a key pillar of health and development, providing a means to enhance the well-being of infants, children and mothers, strengthen the immune system, ensure safe pregnancy and delivery contains, reducing the risk of non-infectious diseases

Guinea-Bissau is facing a severe poverty crisis due to the lack of income from cashew sales in general. Political and climatic challenges exacerbate this precarious situation, leaving countless people without a source of livelihood. Wellfound is currently partnering with four communities to introduce market gardens, where vegetables will be grown for their own consumption and for sale. The villages of Abame, Bidas, Abrigo and Tepde are in the process of developing this new market garden, which will be available in the coming weeks.

More than 200 women enthusiastically accepted the leadership role in the design, organization and implementation of this program. It is encouraging to see men and women together recognizing the paramount importance of nutrition and incorporating it seamlessly into their daily diets. Early studies show that many people, especially children under 5, lack the nutrition they need to get off to a good start in life.
