Mulepa CBO supports CBCC feeding program; thanks to Milimo capacity building support on locally made products for social enterprise

As part of their core mandate, Mulepa CBO supports community childcare centres (CBCC) to ensure that early childhood development heads the right direction in their community. However, the CBO has been struggling to provide their CBCCs with some needs including food which helps the children to stay energized and attracts them to be going to the CBCCs regularly. One of the CBCCs under Mulepa CBO is Nanganga CBCC which has been facing such a challenge. “We’ve been relying on parents to contribute maize flour that each can afford but sometimes we end up having very little hence not preparing the porridge for the children,” said Edna Gileya, Chairperson for Nanganga CBCC committee.

In February 2024, Mulepa CBCO requested the USAID funded Milimo Activity to support them with capacity building in terms of how they can venture into social enterprise busing locally made materials. In response, Miimo trained the CBO on making of soap, manure, peanut batter, and other products which could be sold by the CBO. “The training was so exciting and from that time up to now, we have been making and selling soap… we utilized about K75,000 to buy maize flour and we delivered the flour to Nanganga CBCC for the children’s porridge,” said Mulepa CBO Director, Omex Hussain.


According to Hussain, the CBO also gave the CBCC caregivers some of the locally made soap an incentive to motivate them. “We thank the CBO for supporting us… This is making our job as caregivers easier as the children are motivated by the food”, said Master Kasambwe, one of the caregivers. Hussain said that this is just a start as the CBO plans to keep selling more soap and provide the CBCC with more maize flour and more incentives for the caregivers.
