Infant and Young Child Nutrition Program

Year: 2016
Country: Zambia

Project Description

In Zambia, 45% of children under the age of five are stunted, 15% are underweight, and 5% are wasted. This sad reality has motivated one rural village to develop its own comprehensive feeding program in accordance with a national model that is being rolled out to address malnutrition in Zambian children. This project calls for the purchase of 9 goats and starter seed stock in order to cultivate and raise potential sources of protein, macronutrients, and micronutrients for the area’s malnourished children.
