Last year in Korukonda:

 

 2,974 children under age 5 had their health checked.

Thanks to you, fewer kids in Korukonda are hungry or sick, with many more growing up strong and healthy.

All community health workers and volunteers completed prenatal and postnatal training. They are now caring for pregnant women and newborns, helping more mums and babies stay healthy.

2,323 young people learnt more about nutrition, and received supplements or seeds to grow food. Thank you for helping young people to build healthier futures for themselves.

 

  1,276 caregivers learned how to grow vegetables at home.

Because of you, families are growing nutritious food for themselves and even have extra to sell.

People have learnt how to start and run small businesses, helping them to earn more stable income, meet their children’s needs, and forge a pathway out of poverty, for good.

 

 32 new taps were installed from clean water systems.

Children and families in Korukonda now have more sources of clean water close to home.

There’s been a big push to make sure families know that with good hygiene and sanitation, they can protect themselves from diseases, including COVID-19.

Eleven neighbourhoods now have a safe waste disposal system, helping to keep Korukonda clean and limit the spread of disease.

 

 3,200 children from ages 6 to 18 completed life skills workshops.

You’ve helped more children to get a quality education, even during COVID-19 lockdowns when schools were closed.

Outside of the classroom, children are also learning key life skills. The workshops you’ve made possible have helped children and youth make good judgements, protect themselves, manage their emotions, share their ideas with others and lead change in their community.

“Now, I have my own business and people respect me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing this unforgettable change in my life and my family.”

– Javvada, a father who found hope, strength and support to rebuild his life.
