Challenge

In Zambia, most children born in the rural and peri-urban compounds have fallen prey to malnutrition. The leading factors are that Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) of lactating mothers is poor and that malnutrition prevention foods are expensive.

Solution

The project will target pregnant and lactating mothers to be taught in local food preparation.

Long-Term Impact

The project will 'Reduce by two thirds the mortality rate among 200 children under five annually.'

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
