Project ID:00125813Description:Sustainably Improving Nutritio
Start Date *: 4 Feb 2021
Nutrition for Women & Children
End Date*: 1 Aug 2022
Country: Niger Project Status: On Going
  Participating Organization:   GOAL - GOAL

In partnership with a local private sector company and using a market approach to ensure sustainability, GOAL will improve access to improved, biofortified seeds of nutrient-rich crops for “last-mile” women farmers and train them on climate-smart agriculture, while setting up solar-powered irrigation systems for community gardens to ensure access to nutritious foods during the lean season. A revolving goat bank will not only increase protein intake, but also empower women economically in conjunction with the set-up of village savings, loans associations and business trainings. Behavioral change will be realized through community-led “circles” of women, men and community leaders who will meet regularly over 12 weeks to share knowledge for better nutrition, micro-gardening and cooking demonstrations, an approach which has proven effective for Social behavior Change (SBC). A digital awareness campaign will reinforce adherence while enabling a wider reach. Recognizing links between chronic and acute malnutrition, mothers will be trained on measuring mid-upper a circumference (MUAC) to facilitate early detection and treatment.
