In Central Province there is widespread poverty. With unbalanced diets, many children suffer malnutrition and stunted growth. Most farming households are unable to meet their basic needs and children either cannot afford to go to school or they remain at home to help out on their family farms.
Global Community sponsorship funds are being used to tackle this problem across 13 villages and 18 schools in Central Province. Over the next few years we will be working with families and schools on the development of resource centres, backyard gardens, poultry units and nutrition training for both teachers and students. By June 2016 we expect over 7,000 girls, boys, men and women to benefit from this project.
