What is HealthyStart?

HealthyStart is a food manufacturing social enterprise that aims to end childhood malnutrition in Kenya. HealthyStart is about increasing access by making children nutrition-packed foods affordable for all households. It is also a sustainable 360 model, where a proportion of the profits are channeled towards nutrition programs that directly support children in most vulnerable and marginalized families. 

HealthyStart was founded by June Muchuku, a nutritionist who is very passionate about children. 

Why are we reaching out to you?

  • Your support will enable HealthyStart build a sustainable business model where over 400,000 children’s lives shall be impacted annually 
  • We want to draw on the power of the crowd to kickstart this project.
  • This is exciting because it means we will be able to finally build a  Kenyan sustainable value chain business that is committed to eradicating childhood malnutrition while also creating employment and supporting small-scale farmer livelihood.

What is our Goal?

We completed a market test in low-income areas in Pipeline, Mathare, Kibera, Naivasha, Narok, Nakuru, and Migori, where over 30,000 children benefited. 

The reception HealthyStart received was great, which is why we are scaling up our manufacturing facility and launching in earnest now. We need your help fronting the costs of a large production run we want to start in November 2020. When we hit our fundraising goal, we will be ready to deliver your rewards for donating in December 2020!

But rest assured, when we hit our funding goal we will start preparing for production straight away in earnest to make sure that thousands of children start getting the nutrition they need to thrive!

How to donate?

All funds raised will go towards the manufacturing and distribution of HealthyStart products in Kenya where over 400,000 children  are expected to benefit.

There are two ways of donating: 

One option is where your donation will directly be used to manufacture and supply a HealthyStart pack to a charity of your choice or one of our programs or for your own use. Remember to leave your contact details.
