MEDF Featured in Nation Business Daily

I am very happy to share with you an article in Thursday 24th September 2015 Nation Business Daily highlighting the work of MEDF and our new partnership with Microsoft's "Skype in the Classroom" project. MEDF is also in the midst of developing a new digital platform called "Farm Link" that will be launched at the beginning of December. The platform will be a go-to site for farmers to access comprehensive farming information and interact live through a Call/SMS centre and chatroom. We will keep you informed. Thank you for your continued support of our work.

Promoting Drip Irrigation

MEDF has installed a drip irrigation system at the Teaching Farm and will be training farmers on installation and management. By utilizing drip irrigation and mulching farmers are able to plant throughout the year maximizing the usage of limited water availability. With prolonged dry seasons the installation of drip irrigation systems are economically viable. Crops that do well with open field drip are: kales, onions, tomatoes, capsicum (peppers), squash, spinach, cucumber, watermelon amongst others.

HIV Family Initiative

By the end of 2009, 1.5 million of Kenyans were infected with HIV/AIDS and 1.2 million Kenyans children were orphaned by HIV. 800,000 people lost their lives to the dreaded virus. Various bodies have been funding the fight against HIV in Kenya, with U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS relief (PEPFAR) providing over half Billion dollars and The Global Fund contributed around 100 million dollars in 2009.

Corruption and lack of transparency has led to many donors withholding funds and also limited the impact the funds should have in the society. Though there is reported decrease in number of infections countrywide, the worrying trend is that there are more women aged between 15 to 24 years getting infected every year.

Many of those infected with HIV/AIDS faces challenges varying from weak health to stigma in the society.Many poor who are infected by HIV have been having problem in maintaining a healthy diet and transportation to health centres. MEDF is partnering with a branch of Kijabe Hospital in Githunguri Kiambu County to establish kitchen gardens for the families infected with HIV and also educate them to ensure that they maintain proper diet. We already have a family who we are working with and we have planted more than 50 tree tomatoes in their compound.

This project that we are having is aimed to help more than 100 families affected with the deadly virus. We will be having images and bios of families who are in dire need of your help.
