Project Description

Country: Liberia

Location: Monrovia

Total Budget: $6,000

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health

Activity Type: Health: Disease

Summary: The Peanut Butter House produces and distributes Ready to Use Therapeutic Food or RUTF to fight malnutrition in children who live in and around Monrovia, Liberia.

The Peanut Butter House has been producing RUTF for 11 years and distributing it at no charge to malnourished children in Liberia. The Peanut Butter House produces about 1,000 packets of RUTF each year and distributes the RUTF at 3 centers. The centers serve approximately 1,000 children and their families each year. The average length of treatment is 3-4 weeks of RUTF eaten twice a day.

The Peanut Butter House recently expanded its program to provide additional services to children suffering from malnutrition. This expansion included adding a nurse to the staff, providing medicine for the children and their families and providing rice and fish to the families of children suffering from malnutrition. The cost is $1500 a month to run the Peanut Butter House and these additional services.

The cost breakdown is:

$200 for food for families (rice and fish)

$400 for the three workers on the project which includes the Nurse

$100 for the Transformation International boys and girls who work in the Peanut Butter House

$800 for supplies and ingredients for RUTF

Total $1,500/ month

This Grant will provide funding for 4 months. An NGO, the West African Development Support Organization, will provide the remaining monthly expenses for several years.

Funding Request: $4,000 in DDF and $2,000 from Club Donation for a total of $6,000
