With proper nutrition early in life, children can grow, develop, and thrive to their full potential. we promote healthy immune systems and enable children to develop through adolescence and into adulthood. We do this by providing access to daily healthy locally sourced nutritious meals to children at their place of education. This improves dietary diversity and boosts educational and nutritional outcomes.
Access to quality education is increasingly a luxury for many children. We do not only want children at school, but we also want well-equipped children ready to confront future challenges via meaningful education. We provide backpack support, light-up study rooms in areas without electricity (Energy-for-education), train community teachers (Train-to-Teach), and support toward educational infrastructure including community libraries
Our Home-Grown School Feeding (HGSF) program provides smallholder farmers access to a structured demand market through school feeding. We cluster farmers into cooperatives, build their capacities on improved farming techniques, secure access to land in communities, and boost their marketing potential through our HGSF local procurement model.
We give children and young adults the opportunity to develop technical skills through our Child Skill Development and TVET Programs respectively. While we accompany beneficiary communities with this program, Community Vision Group also empowers trainees with start-up tools to face poverty in the communities We also prioritize unique training that accompanies our school health and nutrition program – Training Community Nutrition Extension Officers to influence and shape nutrition education outcomes for children and their communities
Community Vision Group (CVG) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to contributing toward a poverty-free society, where children can live to their full potential. Our vision is to help transform communities through shared responsibility. Our core program is the “Feed the Child” initiative, emerging from a deep burden to meet the food security, health, and nutritional as well as educational needs of primary-aged children in Cameroon and Malawi.
We are holistic in our approach to community transformation …wherever we feed children, our allied programs including Hepatitis B awareness and support program, primary eyecare program, and skill development follow
Our mainstream School Feeding program is accompanied by two critical health interventions: Hepatitis B education, screening, vaccination, and linkage to care as well as Primary Eye Care. These are cross-cutting interventions that are implemented in every community benefitting from our school feeding program and are also implemented as standalone interventions where school feeding is not prioritized.
