Fathers are joining the 1,000 days of motherhood

By Deborah Torrington | Marketing Manager

Fathers are listening to the audio content on 1,000 Days of Motherhood! Reports coming in from the field from Zambia’s National Food and Nutrition Council (NFNC) that the First 1000 Days content is proving so popular that fathers are also joining in.  

Zambia has one of the highest rates of childhood stunting in the world, due to under-nutrition, and the 1,000 Days program plays a vital role in educating pregnant and new mothers on how to keep themselves and their babies healthy. It's great to hear that fathers are interested in learning about nutrition for their children too!

The 1,000 Days of Motherhood project wouldn't be possible without our solar Lifeplayers.  In the last three months, the NFCF has distributed more Lifeplayers in nine districts, which has made possible a number of new women’s listening groups. As we write this report, training is ongoing in each of the districts. 

The Ministry has developed two new sets of radio series of 13 weeks each, and they are planning to start working on the next set of content, using feedback from the listening groups. They have also designed a short listening guide and feedback form for the districts. The main focus of the new programs will be nutrition, in particular the importance of good nutrition for pregnant mothers and young children. 

The Ministry reports that the Lifeplayers have generated much interest, and they are receiving many requests for more products. We hope to send many more Lifeplayers to Zambia in the near future.
