In Western Kenya, hunger and malnutrition are a challenge. 20% of children under five are stunted and infant mortality rates are above the national average. 1 in 16 children die before they are five. Most families in this densely populated area rely solely on agriculture for their livelihood but many are unable to produce enough quality food to meet their needs. Added to this, mothers and caregivers lack vital knowledge to protect health and nutrition for themselves and their young children.
We will support families to transform unproductive land into thriving farms by providing training in agriculture and animal rearing along with resources so families can increase yields and grow diverse nutritious vegetables and other food crops to eat and sell. We will also work with women of childbearing age and children to improve household health through provision of pit latrines, tip-taps for hand washing, and management of community water resources to give access to safe drinking water.
