Mweiga community updates

  • Incomes grow through self-help groups 

    Through self-help groups, an increasing number of community members are receiving support and training to grow more food and increase their incomes. The Mwireri self-help group received training, building supplies and seedlings to start growing tomatoes in greenhouses. “We harvest 300kgs of tomatoes per week,” says group member, Gladys. “… Our produce is of very high quality, therefore fetching a ready market. This has led us to winning tenders to supply tomatoes in supermarkets and colleges.”

  • More children gain vital ID documents

    The program is supporting families to attain birth certificates for their children. These are essential for them to access government services and crucial in family inheritance matters. This work is being done in partnership with local leaders and the Department of Births and Deaths Registration. To date, the percentage of children aged 0-5 with birth certificates has reached 47.1 percent, up from 40.1 percent in 2012.
