MAMAH is a result of a long, challenging but rewarding journey. My husband and I are proud parents of three lovely boys Philip, Abraham and Jesse. By the time we had our second child we were in some financial challenges exacerbated by the costly city life in Kampala where we both worked – but as parents, one of the most difficult challenges was dealing with the very low appetite of our sons, whose condition the paediatrician said would be improved by frequently providing their choice foods i.e. chicken, fish and fresh fruits. A number of attempts on this proved very much working but came at high cost that our financial status could not support, it was just unsustainable.
Programmes & ProjectsMAMAH has three major programs (ALIVE MAMAH | THRIVE MAMAH | SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM)
ALIVE MAMAH focuses on improving food and nutritional security among communities as well as the general health of the women and children. We train women in the production and consumption of a wider variety of foods, increase nutritional knowledge, and improve food preparation & preservation methods that enhance diet choices. We train them in book keeping, and basic financial management.
We train groups in the rearing of insects for food and feeds. Insects are a rich source of both Human and animal protein and are a viable solution to malnutrition and hunger. Let me send a photo on training on insect rearing which can be put under that section.
SCHOOL LUNCH The school lunch program aims to improve the nutrition of school going children through the fortification of the monotonous maize-based porridge. We support the establishment of school gardens of nutritious foods like mushrooms, Amarantha and Moringa and the rearing of edible insects that are used to fortify the school meals.
