According to the World Bank, approximately 1 in 10 people around the world live on less than $1.90 per day. For ChildFund a key step to sustainability in the dedicated communities where we work is to ensure families have the ability to earn a reliable and steady income.
An example of this is in Emali, Kenya, a community where ChildFund has been improving family and household income by helping dairy farmers with milk production. Through improved genetics and better techniques, farmers are producing enough milk to warrant the establishment of a proper milk-collection system in their community.
ChildFund is currently building five milk-collection centres in the region, giving farmers a drop-off point for their milk, so it can be collected by larger dairy factories and distributed throughout Kenya. This will give farmers, mostly women, improved income to help provide for their families.
