Project of the Month: Martha Njoroge develops a home garden program for HIV+ children in Kenya

Martha Njoroge has been one of CSDi's best students over the past year.

Martha works with the Wamumbi Orphan Care as a Project Manager organizing events for the orphaned children they  support. Martha has partnered with Kathy Tate-Bradish (US) and Genevieve Lamond (UK). Follow the link to see field reports and photos.Martha, Kathy and Genevieve have developed a project which includes these programs:
  • HIV/AIDS an Sexual Health Education Program
  • Advocacy Program with Guardians and Health Care Providers
  • Family Garden and Nutrition Program
  • Farmer Soil and Water Conservation and Management Program


 
 

Let me tell you a little bit about Martha. Martha lives in Kangema, Kenya, a small rural town of 4,000 about 70 miles north of Nairobi. Over the past nine or 10 months Martha has partnered with Kathy Tate-Bradish (Illinois in the US—but with a working relationship in Kenya) and Genevieve Lamond (University of Bangor UK but also with a working relationship in Kenya)

They have developed a project with a group of HIV-positive orphans and vulnerable children and their guardians. Last fall, we learned that one of the children died. Martha works with the Wamumbi Orphan Care (community based organization) as a Project Manager organizing events for the orphaned children they  support.

Martha, Kathy and Genevieve have developed a project which includes these programs in support of their community:
-HIV/AIDS an Sexual Health Education Program
-Advocacy Program with Guardians and Health Care Providers
-Family Garden and Nutrition Program
-Farmer Soil and Water Conservation and Management Program (addressing climate change challenges)
To see the quality of Martha's work and why I'm launching this appeal, view Martha's recent field reports complete with lots of excellent photos of her community members and project activities. Get a real vantage of her field project:
A1 341: Participatory needs assessment.
A3 303: Nutrition survey and nutritious meal.
A8 303: Garden bed planting.
A1 304: Garden progress/growth of produce.
A4 304: Demonstration Gardens.
A4 343: Assessing Community Vulnerability.
A5 343: Results of assessment.
 
I learned last week that her one-year-old baby Brian is seriously ill. Can you please help?

Because of her baby's increasing health challenges, Martha needs ready cash now to pay for doctor bills and for medications. Any amount that you can donate will help. Even $10 will help. Martha will receive 100% of your donation--CSDi is simply acting as a conduit for funds. Please help—and help quickly.
Donate to Martha and Brian: http://www.csd-i.org/donate/
Thank you in advance for whatever you can donate.


Sincerely,

Tim Magee
Executive Director
