Targeting: Food Security and Education

The home has been partnered with Kitechild for over two years, maintaining both a chicken coop and a clean water project, both which have made significant improvements in the quality of nutrition and health for the children in the home.

As we continue to partner with Watoto for sustainable, complete transformation in their quality of care, we are excited for our next project: A greenhouse! In partnership with Amiran Kenya, who supplies over 95% of all greenhouses to Kenyan farmers, the project is a large greenhouse which will be used to cultivate various vegetables through each season. The outputs of the project will be divided 40% of vegetables towards the children’s diet, and 60% of vegetables for wholesale with partnered markets.

Not only does the project elevate the quality of nutrition the children will receive, the profits from the sale of vegetables will be used to pay for secondary school fees for the older children, which is very costly and which the home had difficulty in affording.

The total cost of project, which includes the greenhouse, seeds, fertilizer, insurance, as well as hands on training for the assigned caretaker from Amiran, is $5,000.00. The projected ROI for the project, calculating new materials each season (6 months) is 3 1/2 years.
