Meet Zacheria and Somo, our benificiaries in Mathare Slum!
These boys live in the Joy Divine Children's home located in Mathare slum.
Somo is known as the "Chief Comedian" of the orphanage. With his witty humor, he aspires to be an entertainer - we were lucky to witness his natural gift! Together with his siblings, he benefits from the fresh greens every week. When we see his high energy thrive, we cannot take for granted how important healthy food is for the growing minds!
Zacheria is known as the mysterious adventurer; his character shines through the picture. He loves being outdoors, discovering new places and exploring new facts of life as he enters his teenage years. Together with his sister he benefits from our vegetables every week.
We are happy to support these kids and giving them a chance to pursue their dreams. But above all, allowing them to be 'kids' who do not have to worry about their next meal and enable them to have the energy to grow and play!
Meet Damaris, our Supply Hub Coordinator in Muranga!
Damaris is the Supply Hub Coordinator in Murang'a. She is a farmer herself and also the liaison between Farm to Feed and the farmers in her specific area. Every week she coordinates with the farmer groups in her area to understand the food loss of the week and prepares the load for the weekly pick up.
The other group members and I had little income of our own, and as a result, little independence. We was even difficult to send our children to school.
With a Farm to Feed Kenya, women are now thriving in their small scale farming. Different women groups proudly told the FTF team that their farming business have given them financial independence and they can now able feed there children.
They tells us that they life has changed in a lot of ways thanks to FTF
