Who are we

NDALO Heritage (NDALO) was started by a group of volunteers in 2020 in response to the need to promote nutrition and food security during the first 1000days of life in underprivileged communities of Sub Saharan Africa. NDALO engages stakeholders such as farmers, households and preschool practitioners on community agri-business projects such as organic farming, bee keeping, fish farming and poultry. This is aimed at helping improve public access and utilization of nutritious foods.

The organisation is registered in Kenya under the Ministry of East Africa Community, Labour and Social Protection Department of Social Development.
NDALO has diverse and experienced human resource including international partners who are often contracted for services. It also
 has exhibition centres where community members and farmers can access fresh farm produce as well as obtain training and mentorship on sustainable agriculture.

NDALO provides valuable input in the development of preschool nutrition programmes where parents and early childhood development (ECD) practitioners are trained on strategies for promoting children’s preference for healthy foods. This may include songs, games and involving children and the parents in the preparation and planting of preschool vegetable gardens.
We conduct occasional free nutritional assessments where the public are screened and those at risk of malnutrition or non-communicable diseases enrolled for lifestyle management classes.

In the long-term NDALO intends to invest on nutrition clinics, schools, farms and artisans. Nutrition, food accessibility and income generation will be enhanced by working on internal projects such as farms, apiculture and dairy keeping.
NDALO works with community health workers (CHWs) and agricultural extension officers. The CHWs (for instance) are trained on basic diagnostic and health assessment approaches such as growth monitoring to screen and identify pre-disease conditions within the communities for health and nutrition rehabilitation in our clinics. The agricultural extension officers help oversee community farming projects and refer any complicated cases to relevant authorities where we will have qualified experts within the welfare home to intervene.
