An Interim Update from Zambia

Firstly, let me apologise for the tardiness of this update. We've been waiting for feedback from our local partner in Zambia, the National Food and Nutrition Commission (NFCC).

Their teams have been in the field and haven’t been in a position to report back to us. They work in rural areas so remote that villages can only be reached in off-road vehicles. And it may take a day or more just to get there.  The nutrition response team is speaking to mothers about the Bushes that Grow radio programme series, its effectiveness, limitations and challenges. They are also monitoring the value of our Lifeplayer MP3 units to reliably deliver the content. This is in addition to surveying how the information is impacting stunting and mother and child health during the critical first 1000 days. 

The NFCC had hoped they could respond with a formal update already, but they’ve informed us that they’re still in the field and the reports would not be ready to meet the GlobalGiving deadline.

What they do ask is can we please send more Lifeplayer units, as it’s the only way these rural mothers’ groups can listen as Bushes that Grow isn’t broadcast on radio due to the cost.

Stay tuned until next time! And thank you again for your support.
