Child malnutrition is a key program initiative of the Binza Childhood Rescue project.
Child malnutrition is more than a lack of food, it's a social, economic and health issue. In Binza, food insecurity is compounded by the effects of climate change, violence & forced displacement.
So, in 2019 when the CHR project began, the community agreed that the only way to truly tackle the problem was from multiple angles. Families needed practical & sustainable tools to immediately survive but also build a future.
Enter, the humble bunny rabbit or... 1300 of them!

No one knows a community like the leaders and elders! This programme is a brilliant example of the power of listening and designing solutions with those that know it best.
Choosing breeding programmes for Binza Childhood Rescue projects mean the community was investing in:
- Ongoing food producing opportunities
- Sustainable income producing opportunities
- Access to varied nutrition sources for children
- Easy, affordable start up solutions with fast results
- Simple integration for members of business and savings groups
Childhood Rescue supporters, be encouraged!
In Binza, children are surviving malnutrition, families are recovering, learning new skills & developing their own income ventures and the community is building towards a sustainable future.
And that's the impact you're helping make possible.
From 1300 bunnies and counting,
