Project Launch: 5-22-19
The "Empower Community Development Initiative (ECODI)" organization was founded in 2017 and has already built an under-five clinic and launched a Keep Girls in School initiative. Through the clinic for pregnant women and children under-five, the community recognized a need to reduce malnutrition among children. This project is focused on making Organic Fertilizer, both to improve their own crop yeilds and to sell as an income-generating tool. They will use the grant for trainings and materials, starting with materials for 10 farmers, who will each in turn create 10 more bags of fertilizer to share and sell. The increased crop yields will be used to supplement children's nutrition and surplus crops can be sold at market to generate income.
