The project – called SONGO (Sustaining Opportunities for Nutrition Governance) – aims to address child undernutrition among 95,000 rural households by employing nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions through a lifecycle approach to deliver the right services and messages to the right person at the right time. SONGO will mobilise and train local communities as well as public, private and civil-society actors to collectively take the necessary actions towards improved nutrition in the country.
