This case study examines the impact of the Bwaliro Primary School
feeding and agroforestry program on the human, financial, natural, and
social capitals of the surrounding Bwaliro community in western Kenya.
Additional to the targeted improvements in attendance and educational
performance, program spillover effects likely included enhanced child
health, community agroforestry knowledge, increased tree planting and
diversity of crops and trees, saved household income, and improved
relations within the family unit and among community members.
Participants suggested that increasing the community's capacity to
contribute to and collaborate with the school is necessary for program
sustenance and for further community development.
