Overall, KIHO will distribute a total of 203.5 metric tons of food, including 166.87 mts of maize, 12.21 mts of vegetable oil and 24.42 mts of pulses provided by WFP aiming at benefiting a total of direct population of 5,820 people. KIHO will facilitate and supervise the process through local food distribution committees that will be set up in all the six villages. The food will sustain the contribution of the local community in implementing infrastructure projects in two major areas:
1. Provide access to adequate, clean and safe drinking water within 500 meters to 13,224 people out of which 6,677 are women in four villages of Chajo, Gonjanza, Malindi and Mwembe and hence improve rural livelihood conditions.
2. Construct 18.8 kms of village market access roads benefiting a total of 4,945 villagers out of which 2,476 are women of Minyala and Tae villages, so as to reduce transportation costs, increase accessibility to the local markets, reduce perishability of agricultural products and hence ensuring food security in Minyala and Tae villages.
In the past financial year 2012/2013, KIHO facilitated the implementation of constructing three market access roads from October 2012 - March 2013. It included the rehabilitation of two village market roads of 8km in Tae and 15km in Malindi as well as the construction of a new village market access road in Minyala with 10km. The successful implementation of these projects and distribution of the food donated by WFP, made sure that KIHO builds up a lasting partnership with WFP.
