- Access to clean water for families from the 26 regularly-chlorinated water wells, including three at the market and five water kiosks. This translates into less time spent fetching water by women and girls, as well as a reduced burden of water-borne diseases.
- Greater income and food security for families participating in the vegetable growing project. We are seeing yield increases of 45% – 280% for families participating in the farm inputs support program.
- Increased income and food security for more than 94 families involved in vegetables, cassava, corn and fish farming. Nearly half of the participants are female-headed households.
- Greater awareness on community, social, health and economic issues through the adult literacy program.
- Safer and sanitized environment with improved pit latrines serving 12,267 people and the regular chlorination of water wells.
- Use of chicken manure on a large scale (at least 2,500 Kg/month) instead of chemical fertilizers for a positive impact on soil fertility, crop yields, soil conservation, pest management, and community health.
- Protection from malaria through new treated mosquito nets.
- Access to basic education for more than 512 kids who would have been otherwise left out of the education system in our partner communities. Enrollment continues to be on the rise: 22 new students registered during the last term alone.
