FAMILY PRESERVATION PROGRAM: The Family Preservation Program (FPP) formerly called the Milk and Medicine program is a community based, family centered intervention designed to promote the health and well-being of children under the age of five (5) who are at risk of Institutionalization or death.
Nutrition and nurture addresses acute and critical physical needs by providing food, milk and medicine to children 0-5, social welfare support, and connection to a local church partner. There are currently 319 families and 379 children being served in this program.
Empower and earn pilot program has provided economic empowerment for 40 families via skills training. Our technical partner “Clothed in Hope” empowers families through skills training in sewing and handcrafted retail items. Our first group of 15 graduated from their 12 month program in early 2016.
Save and support is our newest and youngest pilot program component beginning in October 2015. We currently have 80% of our families saving between K10 – K20 per month – which is profound considering most of them live on less than K20 per day.
