The Potter's Heart Child Foundation.

 

PHCF livelihood program aims to develop life skills of families of OVCs and empower them in overcoming social, economic and environmental challenges. Our interventions have been designed to improve efficiency in production systems, lower input costs, increase per capita output and improve food and nutritional security at household level. Our cross cutting areas of intervention are;

 

  • Skills development including soap and shampoo making, cakes and bread making, school chalk, candle and paper beads making, charcoal briquettes and computer training, and small enterprises where many young women and youth have started on small business and improve on their households income.
  • Urban farming for food and nutritional security among the OVC households; this includes training families on major categories of food and balanced diet. Vegetable demonstration gardens are established and adopt growing vegetables which have improved on their health status and income from the surplus.
  • Community mobilization and empowerment; including capacity building through training of peer to peer educators, strengthening referral pathways, social capital network and resource mobilization
