Vincent Atitwa, Fortified Staple Flours (2013 Impact Grant)
Vincent Atitwa’s project is to end chronic malnutrition in Western Kenya. In the past year, Atitwa has trained 25 families, providing them with potatoes vines, amaranth grain seeds, cassava cuttings and sorghum and teaching them how to grow and propagate the crops. Some of these families are now paying it forward and providing seeds to the next group of families who will be trained in farming these nutrient rich grains.
