THANK YOU FROM FAMILES IN BURKINA FASO AND MALI – Numerous Donors Help REDUCE MALNUTRITIONIN AFRICA!

One hardboiled egg a day can be life saving, improving nutrition and providing children and pregnant women in particular with many of the necessary minerals, carbohydrates and protein they need.

Our Nutrition Project “An Egg a Day” – Poor Small Farmers Are Successfully Trained

In this project, families were provided with laying hens, roosters and poultry feed. They successfully completed training and benefited from “self-sufficiency packages.”

Background: Lacking skills and educational poverty among people in the border region of Mali and Burkina Faso mean that poultry farming as well as vegetable cultivation are still in the early stages of development. Farmers encounter a number of recurring difficulties that further limit access to needed food.

Climate change and the very limited nutritional knowledge of the affected households increase food insecurity and have a negative impact on the nutrition of children in particular, with symptoms of malnutrition or undernourishment. The existential hardship of the large number of very poor households forces many people to flee.
