Visit to one of Nasio’s projects – The Porridge Kitchen
February 2024

We were lucky enough on our recent visit to Nasio’s projects to be involved in the new support group for mums with malnourished babies or very young children. Two GMK clinical members accompanied the group as well as the community nutritionist, all on hand to offer professional advice. This group was a close-knit company of ladies able to offer support to each other, especially if they needed some ‘escape time’ from a difficult family situation.

The Porridge Kitchen had recently evolved so that the group had decided to meet at a different home each week. The advantage of this, rather than meeting at the clinic, was the support individuals gained. Everyone, including us, mucked in – digging over a plot of land, making furrows in which to plant indigenous seeds and covering them so that they can then feed the family.

Next week they will all meet at another member’s home and repeat the process.

We then walked back to the yard where a protein rich porridge was bubbling outside on an open fire along with a bowl of sweet potatoes. Everyone was given a cupful of porridge to which two tablets of powdered spirulina that had been grown and dried by Team Green was added and then they could help themselves to the potatoes.

As the group prepared to disperse each family was given a bag full of flour that would last the week to make ugali or chapati.

The whole experience  was transformative, providing an immediate answer to hunger issues as well as planning for long term diet improvement.

Publishing in Africa at the London Book Fair By Katie Isbester

In further support of the Nasio Trust’s Library appeal, Katie Isbester talks about her recent trip to the London Book Fair and a fortuitous discovery!

I didn’t mean to go to the talk. There were some 30,000 people at the London Book Fair and I was supposed to meet at least a few of them. Instead I found myself going to a talk on publishing in Africa because of Nasio Trust. I knew it was trying to build a library, the first of its kind in Western Kenya, and I was rather curious.
