IMPACT Program Goals and Approach

The Bayer Foundation, in partnership with Africare, have committed $5 million over a five-year period to improve nutrition and access to healthy food for mothers and young children in Kenya.
This will be achieved by strengthening nutrition, food security and resilience outcomes for households in Turkana. The regions of implementation are Turkwe (Loima Sub County) and Katilu (Turkana South sub County} through a two-pronged approach:-
1. Address immediate causes of malnutrition by improving access to quality health services and increase knowledge for prevention and treatment of malnutrition.
2. Address underlying determinants of malnutrition by increasing household access, availability, and consumption of diversified and nutrient rich food. It’s a great honor and pleasure to serve you!
