Food Support

Food and daily supply-needs for the 63 children at the Kithoka Amani Children’s Home (KACH) in October 2020, during Kenya’s first lockdown.

Final Campaign Report

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have housed 63 children since March 2020.
From the donations through iMPACT direct we bought food, toiletries, and other supplies for the kids at KACH. Below are photographs showing the food and supplies we bought to feed and take care of the children in the month of October (2020).

 

Outcome report Feb’22 | Changes observed

The food project highlighted the deeper food insecurity in the community – so much that my own kids saw the need and asked me whether they could share the food with some very needy families in the community.

 

Actions still need to undertake

Work with the community to create their own food forests by carrying out training programmes. The first phase will involve creating a demonstration site; and phase two will be carrying out trainings with the community members and school children.

Other stakeholders can play their part too. The government needs to give the right information to people so that can move from food security to food sovereignty. Community members need information that will enable them to make informed decisions regarding the care of their farms so that they use organics ways of producing their food; considering there is a high incidence of cancer in Meru County due to excessive use of chemicals in their food production chain. These chemicals end up in our foods and water.

The longer term objectives we have at IPI are not yet achieved.
That is why we can only call the project successful once we started training the farmers at our demonstration site and when they are creating their own food forests and this building their food sovereignty over time. And longer-term: when we see the incidences of cancer drop.

 

 

Community impact 

International Peace Initiatives (IPI) creates spaces where orphans can find who they are and thrive. Our homes provide a place where vulnerable children find love, care, shelter, food, education and a roof over their heads. So that they can break the cycle of poverty in their lives and that of their families. Besides, IPI works with women living with HIV/AIDS, survivors of violence and communities with the tools and resources to move to stability and self-reliance.

Budget

This is to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for the donation of Euros 265 that you generously donated towards our food and daily supplies needs at the Kithoka Amani Children’s Home (KACH) in October 2020.
