Sponsors for babies in the community

Initailly $50 (£30) per baby, per month

We currently support 25-30 babies in the community with supplemental foods to boost their nutrition. We teach mothers to prepare hi-protein soya porridge and milk (F100) to World Health Organisation guidelines. The ingredients for a month, for one baby is about $50 (£30) when they first start on the programme and this is scaled down as they improve. We also look at each family situation and provide for immediate needs with a direct affect on the babies well-being.

Community Nutrition Workshop

Through community nutrition workshop we show people how to best use locally available food and to suppliment their diets for better health. We eat together as we demonstrate and discus nutrition, food preparation, hygene and family welfare. Each workshop costs approximately $120 (£70)

Chicken and pig homes for family strengthening

Our pigs and chickens are doing well. We want to help vulnerable families in our community through animal husbandry. We will donate animals, give training and support. Could you help them get started with some basic materials? For a simple chicken coop - $30 (£18) or a small pig shelter - $100 (£60)

Solar Fridge Freezer

A fish processing company donates good fish to us. Sometime over 65lb (30kg) in weight at a time! It is great for the babies, but it takes sometime to get through. Whilst the sun is pretty regular here the electricity supply is less reliable and sometimes fails to start our regular fridge/freezer. A solar fridge/freezer would really help us store food safely. It will also help us to keep milk fresh as we look to have our own milking goats and possibly cows. Cost approximately $1,600 (£1,000)
