Africa Inland Child and Community Agency for Development

      Currently we undertake four projects

Food Security Project

The project goal is to improve the nutritional status of children in the six rescue centres through sustainable agriculture by 2014.

This has been achieved through capacity building of both advisory committees & centre staff and use of modern farming techniques such as drip irrigation and green house technology in supporting the children homes and ensuring sustainable food security.

Provision of adequate food of good quality has been the greatest challenge in sustaining the residential children in our rescue centers. This is as result of multiple factors among them rainfall failure, increased inflation which has led to food prices to double and reduced community contribution because of similar factors.  This has subsequently increased the cost of supporting Orphans and vulnerable children in all the centers. A huge budget is directed towards provision of food to children as opposed to other important infrastructural development of the centers.

Food security program aims at achieving food sustainability in our Children Rescue Centers and communities through implementation of sustainable food production and income generating projects.
