Malnutrition, in particular vitamin A deficiency, is very high in Zambia; reported to be 40-50% in the under 5 yr olds. Although several steps have been taken to addressing this, the figures illustrate very slow progress.
I introduced a small, simple trial project within our local community; orange maize, a vitamin A rich crop. It has been a success and I have plans to extend it to poor rural communities, where subsistence farming is the way of life.
Attached is an outline of the project and my plan.
