Our Food Care Package Plan

Would you like to transform the life of a deserving exceptional young man?

Here’s information about our Food Care Package Plan.

Lifesong Kenya team sits with individual families and learns about their usual meal routine. The information gathered helps us to plan meals together with family members. This approach helps provide respect of choice, encourages participation and upholds the dignity of vulnerable families that need help, care and support during a crisis.

Each family is then asked to budget with KShs. 1000 ($10) or more depending on the family size. Once the budget is ready, the beneficiaries introduces our team to their usual shop or vendor who are often a friend, family member or neighbour. This ensures that there is steady income and retention of jobs within the local community even if it means just five people.

Every amount that you donate goes towards buying daily food supplies for families who need care and support during COVID-19. It also helps to promote and provide an income for women who sell vegetables, tomatoes, onions, eggs, cooking oil and rice thereby reducing the number of vulnerable people in the local community.

Our Food Care Package Plan

Each family is then asked to budget with KShs. 1000 ($10) or more depending on the family size. Once the budget is ready, the beneficiaries introduces our team to their usual shop or vendor who are often a friend, family member or neighbour. This ensures that there is steady income and retention of jobs within the local community even if it means just five people.

Lifesong Kenya pays for the supplies and asks the beneficiary to pick the items on a daily or weekly basis. Since most vulnerable families often pick food supplies on a need basis and especially when they have money, this is very beneficial. Our food care package plan ensures that, despite the challenges that have been brought by COVID-19, life isn’t disrupted very much.

Here’s what is in our Care Pack

Every Family Unit is Unique

Since every family unit is unique, Lifesong Kenya doesn’t give a one-fits-all approach to giving. We give each family the opportunity to customize the package so they can get what they really need as opposed to us giving what we think they want. But we need your help. Support our campaign and help us to provide a unique experience. By providing what each family needs, we create greater impact that benefits and empowers the whole community.

Conclusion

As a team, we’ve chosen to take a different and unique path towards supporting families that need help during COVID-19. Our approach is informed by the need to provide inclusion, respect and uphold the dignity of the families we are working with.

It helps us to teach them responsibility, respect for each other and holding each other accountable, which rarely happens in most families where one person makes decisions without involving others.

Lastly, buying from local businesses enables us – our team, you our supporter and our beneficiaries to achieve the following goals:-

Less disruption of the lifestyle that our hand-picked beneficiaries are used to

  • Give beneficiaries the power to help choose items that they need
  • Promote local businesses
  • Teach our beneficiaries how to plan for meals and have a balanced diet
  • Show beneficiaries the art of giving back when they’ll be able to
  • Save money that would have been spent on packaging and transport
