With perennial cases of drought and high malnutrition cases reported in Turkana County, one of the interventions that Africare came up with was the introduction of kitchen gardens for lead mothers as well as pregnant and lactating women in Turkwell and Katilu Wards in Loima and Turkana South Sub-Counties respectively.

Identified households were trained in nutritious vegetable cultivation skills, good agricultural practices, cooking demonstrations, and harvesting techniques. Encouraged by the new concept, most members of the community were captivated, and they adopted the kitchen gardens with the hope that the new concepts would improve nutrition standards as well as boost the family incomes through the selling of vegetables as well as overall savings.
