Reduce Infant Mortality

Giving children a healthy start.

A child’s nutritional development from the earliest age is critical for their future and by extension, for society. Through a partnership with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), we implemented health and nutrition programmes in 150 Early Childhood Care and Development Centres.

We want children to survive and not die needlessly.

As part of achieving our survive goal, we have done whatever it takes to reduce the number of deaths of children under five. This includes the promotion of breastfeeding and developing a culture of health and nutrition interventions at an early age in our Early Childhood Care and Development Centres. Part of achieving our survive goals includes addressing the critical issues facing teenagers, so that their lives won’t be cut short.

We are thus pioneering our health and nutrition focus area, with three new projects being implemented. We saw a significant jump from 2015 in numbers of children and adults reached.

The success of this means it will be implemented in more schools.

But we cannot do this on our own. Help us reach more children by setting up your monthly donation today!
