Challenge

In Muyira community in Uganda, there is no appropriate feeding practice for children 0-59 months,there is little food production and income to enable households to provide required nutrition components to the children to enable them to have immunity to fight diseases and also minimize nutrition related illnesses. Over 200 Mothers / care takers have never been trained in appropriate feeding mechanisms in order to feed their children.

Solution

50 Mothers / care takers to begin with will be trained in appropriate feeding mechanisms in order to feed their children. The project will also provide food to be used in training especially in local "ekitoobero"(steamed nutritious children meals preparation). This diet will comprise mainly of silver fish,ground nuts,vegetables, bananas, etc.

Long-Term Impact

The project will contribute to ensuring that children enjoy good health, the community is aware of the best feeding practices and children have access to education
