02. Providing water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)
We work with our communities to give them access to clean water and sanitation. By drilling and rehabilitating wells, installing latrines and providing WASH training, we kept over 600,000 people safe and free from disease in 2021.

03. Generating food security and livelihoods
By reaching nearly a million people, creating over 100 communal farms, training farmers and equipping them with over 300,000 seeds and tools last year alone, we are creating food security and stable livelihoods for our people.

We upskill our communities in farming practices and provide inputs like seeds and tools so that they can grow vegetables together and provide for their families as well as generate income from selling the surplus.
We closely monitor children under the age of five years as well as pregnant and lactating mothers in clinics and outpatient facilities as well as upon discharge, along with nutrition and health education to ensure that rehabilitated individuals do not relapse.

05. Empowering education
By serving tens of millions of school meals to hundreds of thousands of children, revamping school infrastructure and creating over 200 school gardens just last year, we ensure that our children stay in school and look forward to a bright future.

School nutrition gardens complement our school-feeding activities by increasing the variety and nutritional diversification in diets through the vegetable we grow together as well as providing a practical learning space around planting, harvesting, and nutrition.
Special projects allow for improvements to be made to the infrastructure of schools and preschools/ Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres that create a safe learning environment for vulnerable children.
