The DR Congo, with a land area of 2.35 million km2 and a population of around 111.85 million, is experiencing difficulties in ensuring access to food, healthcare, and basic education for its population.
The first to suffer from this situation are children. Forty-three percent under the age of five have chronic malnutrition and 13% have acute malnutrition. The lack of access to quality healthcare and healthy, balanced, and regular nutrition hinders the good schooling of children.
It has been shown that providing a meal to students and combating malaria, one of the most widespread diseases in the country, as well as gastric and waterborne diseases is one of the most effective ways to combat school dropout.
The Mouvement d'Appui pour la Promotion de la Famille (MAPORFRAM) is fighting against the cycle of learning and economic poverty with a grassroots solution: creating an ecological farm at a local school.
The farm will be established at the CS Amida School and provide students with:
* highly nutritious and medicinal plants
* small livestock and poultry for breeding
* a canteen
* youth clubs to empower them to monitor and sustain the project
* education on environmental and biodiversity issues
* the support to connect with their communities to encourage local dynamics and encourage the population to target farming practices from an economic, health, and environmental point of view
The goals of this project are to:
* improve the health and nutrition of school children and teachers at CS Amida School
* improve the quality of education
* contribute to the improvement of students' academic results
* reduce school absenteeism
* disseminate the ecological school farm method throughout the community
The beneficiaries are:
* Direct: 920 students, 50 young people, and 34 teachers
* Indirect: 900 families, the families of school children and the surrounding local community
