We first built Shades with information on breast feeding. We have now embarked on an integrated engagement in environmental interventions like planting fruit trees as a source of Vitamin C and help fight malnutrition in children. We are also involved in micro environmental health initiatives.

Our first project were the Shades that were constructed with information on breast feeding, prevention and testing for cancer.These shades provide critically needed venues for public health education on the benefits of breast feeding, malaria, cervical cancer screening for women and HIV/AIDS and addressing malnutrition . We have since widened our focus to Environmental Health Initiatives.
