Improving Nutrition in Somaliland

Malnutrition results from a variety of factors, not just one simple cause; however, this project is located among the areas worst hit by the drought in Somaliland. The overall goal is to reduce malnutrition among young children. World Concern aims to improve the nutritional status of children ages 6-23 months and their mothers. This will be achieved through empowering mothers with appropriate nutrition and health information using the care group model. As a result, the project will improve maternal nutrition and health care, infant and young child feeding practices, hygiene and sanitation, as well as the use of safe water.
