Food Security Program

Because nutritious food is the basis for good health.

VHW initiated its food security program in 2008 because malnutrition was one of the most prevalent diseases in our catchment area. At first we focused on nutrition education and crop diversification. Then the program evolved to include awareness-raising events and community training in agriculture, livestock management, and environmental protection. Participants manage on-site gardens and livestock shelters, grow community gardens,  and take part in agricultural and livestock cooperatives.

Our agriculture, livestock, and environmental protection programs manage gardens and livestock shelters on site, as well as 20 school gardens, 65 cooperatives, and 600 household gardens throughout the catchment area.
