- THE STORY
Targeting: Education, Nutrition
The project consists of the purchase of 2 Dairy Cows for Watoto Wema
Number of Children Impacted : 75
- The main objective of this project is to grow Watoto’s cows from 2 to 4, in order to consistently provide nutritious milk to the children at the home.
- Surplus milk will be sold in the local market and will help fund the efforts of the social workers who handle the re-integration cases of each child. The cows are expected to produce a minimum of 8 gallons per day.
Watoto Wema has been a long-standing Kitechild partner, since 2012. Over the course of several years, we have implemented various projects including chicken coops, clean water access, and a greenhouse, all which have improved the quality of life for children residing in the home, as well as elevated the standards of care which Watoto Wema has rigorously upheld.
