This project is empowering women to ensure improved health & nutrition of children under 5 & pregnant women through raising their awareness and supporting them with nutritious foods to feed their children.We educate them to breast feed children but along with other solid foods. Poor nutrition in the first 1,000 days of a child's life can lead to stunted growth, which is irreversible and associated with impaired cognitive ability& reduced school and work performance
Mothers and other care takers have not been sensitized on the values of food that they have in their home stead. They seem not to know which foods are the glow, the go and the grow foods; they simply feed the children so that they are not hungry, not with the purpose of attaining a balanced diet.
This project will ensure that the community especially women, men and local leaders are empowered to ensure pregnant women and children under five have improved health, this will ensure adequate growth by strengthening services and increasing community involvement in health and nutrition education activities.
This project will carry out evaluation after implementation,the evaluation will enable us to assess the level of awareness gained about the importance of balanced diet to children under 5. We will use both qualitative and quantitative methods of evaluation to assess the impact of the project.
