Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Sierra Leone

Location: Pujehum District

Total Budget: $200,000

Area of Focus: None



I. Cure for Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM Disease)

A. Ready to Use Therapeutic Foods (RUTF)

B. Treatment approved by World Health Organization (WHO) and Word Food Program (WFP)

C. Area recommended by WHO and WFP

II. Project Peanut Butter (PPB)

A. Fully Sustainable history

1. 14 years Malawi

2. 10 years Sierra Leone

3. 2 years Ghana

B. Works cooperatively with WHO, WFP, USAid and UNICEF

III. PPB Sierra Leone Prepared to expand programs

A. Sierra Leone endured a 18-month fight against the Ebola Virus, a fatal disease with a death toll of almost 4,000.

B. The epidemic traumatized families and communities across the country, disturbing all aspects of life.

C. Sierra Leone must endure a long road to recovery. Improvements seen prior to 2013 evidently reversed, the country must persevere, restoring stability in all sectors of the country.

D. Project Peanut Butter is instrumental in this recovery

IV. Project Peanut Butter new TRF Global Grant GG1747173

A. In addition to the current

B. program in Sierra Leone, Project Peanut Butter has selected a new target location in the Southern province for nutrition and health interventions:

C. Pujehun District a large district i with a population of about 375,000, but has one of the lowest population densities.

D. World Food Program (WFP) selected this area as a major need in Sierra Leone and has agreed to work with Project Peanut to start work in this area.

E. This district had the second largest percent of stunted children under 5 at 46 percent and under 5 mortality rate, 217 deaths per 1,000 live births.

F. An area with many barriers within the district that made access to healthcare difficult and coverage scarce.

G. A program in Pujehun is not going to be effortless, but hungry kids, malnutrition, can't wait for roads and bridges to be built.

V. Pujehun has the highest percentage of young mothers with almost half of (48%) adolescents between ages 15-19 already in motherhood and has the highest fertility women on average having 6 or more children.

A. These adolescent mothers are still growing themselves , consequently the fetus has to compete for nutritients, the outcome is smaller, shorter, and preterm babies. These poor infant outcomes are often then related to poor growth in childhood

B. Project Peanut Butter therefore will consentrate on maternal health and education as well.

DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
