Nutrition Report on Healthy Diets in Akwaya

 

Nutrition Report on Healthy Diets in Akwaya

 

Activity

It was time to provide groundnut and vegetable seeds for the women to plant.  These seeds were planted in different seasons and zones in our project areas.  After training in the hall, the women were drilled on practicals from preparing the farm, nursery and planting the seeds. (see pictures)

Distribution of Seeds

The team of FORUDEF staff met with the women’s groups and distributed groundnut  and vegetable seeds. e have added the piggery component to the nutrition programme.  This time we have bought two piglets still to be given to a group for beginning of protein guarantee on diet.

 Constraints

 Access to Akwaya area remains a challenge to us as the roads are very bad.  We have to trek most of the times.  The change in seasons also posed a problem for planting some crops.  The effects of climate are glaring out here.  We are driving the population to adaptation actions, as well as actions to mitigate the effects of climate change.  Again, our activities time frames are affected by the difficulty of inaccessibility

 Conclusion

The groundnut was distributed and the next trip will be for the distribution of beans for the women in Akwaya.  It is not yet time to plant beans and vegetable.  However, for the women in Bomaka it was time to plant vegetable.  In our next report of the monitoring visit, we would see the vegetable growing already.  The women appreciate the change process in their diet.  The radio programme to spread the message at rural communities in pidgin language is an added flavor to the spread of nutrition values.  So far we have reached more than 600 women with nutrition training.  We thank our GlobalGiving donors immensely.
