Help PromoteNationwide Sustainable Health Management Projects in Kenya
Increases in availability of qualitative data; Increases in availability and use of service delivery systems; Reduced morbidly and morality; Improved maternal and child health; Increased women e
To develop a nation wide Delivery Systems for basic Health Services through;-
- Providing technical advisors;
- Participant training;
- Providing local demonstration centers in the villages for learning and programme development;
- Providing commodities including essential equipment and drugs and currency support for traditional health doctors, health centers and clinics throughout Kenya.
- Providing western allopathic medicines beyond a few dozen private doctors- to manage one modest hospital in each district. The present private doctors and private hospitals have their activities organized by landed elites and mainly benefit these elites;
- Documentation of human, livestock and plant diseases found in the project area;
- Providing assistance to plant fodder, fuel wood, medicines, anti-parasitic and biopesticides species for public health in owned lands and forests in the country;
- Providing knowledge for biodiversity management of existing peoples lands through testing and demonstrations;
- Promoting use of organic fertilizers and green manure;
- Promoting alternative energy use e.g. solar, over 90% of the nations energy needs are being met by burning fuel wood, a situation that is contributing to reduced fertility and destructions of forests;
- Support in government efforts to develop better polices on sanitation purpose and safe water especially among the poor in a participating process;
- To improve production and other measurable quality of life indicators in project areas and to create local demand for, and control of national source delivery systems or agricultural resource management, health and education;
The four broad targets essential to achieve these purpose will be:-
- Increased household food production and consumption;
- Increased income generating opportunities;
- Strengthened capacity of Kenyans and other local organizations to carry out local development projects;
The impact of village development work upon the rural people will be much greater than generally recognized.
To-date no one in the villages has ever considered that their government and partnership with THIN and supporters and partners. "Care" -Not only will the concepts of self-help and community cooperation be introduced, more important, a large number of rural people will become receptive to the idea of CHANGE
Thus a second foundation will laud in many areas.
Increases in availability of qualitative data;
- Increases in availability and use of service delivery systems;
- Reduced morbidly and morality;
- Improved maternal and child health;
- Increased women empowerment;
- Health education in general will equip populations with awareness of the risks, benefits and dangers inherent in self-medication with all sorts of drugs;
The projects design is an integrated development project that is easy to coordinate.
There will be a baseline survey for 2009
A joint mid-term review including THIN and other development parties conducted at the mid point of 2012, with a view of obtaining substantive feedback on the progress made towards achieving stated outcomes.
The end of project renew will ensure that achievements and lessons learnt are recognized and recorded. Constraints experienced and ways and means of addressing such constrains in future will also be documented. Any best practices emerging from the project will be acknowledged and disseminated.
An important aspect of this review and evaluation will be to establish the extend to which crosscutting issues have been integrated and addressed and the resultant gains. This will start in the annual reviews as well as internal view through the mid-term evaluation, so that the final review will be to asses the eventual impact.
THIN is a country-wide non-profit making non-governmental organization undertakes projects depending on:-
- Availability of resources , infrastructure, technical financial
- Ability of peoples themselves to undertake or participate in the agreed prospects.
During the period 2003-2008 THIN has carried out participatory data gathering and analyzing interactive learning and training with the help of volunteers in the areas of immediate tangible impacts.The areas have included Siaya (Ngiya) Gem (Matoro) Kakamega (Shinyalu, Malava ) South Nandi( Kabujoi).
These are the most densely populated regions in rural Africa. Despite being blessed with plentiful rainfall, decades of intense agricultural production have severely depleted soil fertility and soil erosion is a major problem. There is crisis of food production in the small holder farms in these areas, compiled with high levels of poverty, infectious diseases, HIV/AIDS, while many organizations have worked in the area for decade, there has been much duplication and fragmentation efforts, the tempos of our work is not upbeat because of inadequate resources.
