To support the local production of fortified children’s food for pregnant and lactating women and children under five in Zambia's rural and peri-urban areas.
In Zambia, most children born in the rural and peri-urban compounds have fallen prey to malnutrition. The leading factors are that Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) of lactating mothers is poor and that malnutrition prevention foods are expensive.
The project will target pregnant and lactating mothers to be taught in local food preparation.
The project will 'Reduce by two thirds the mortality rate among 200 children under five annually.'
