UK Aid Direct is pleased to confirm the name of a non-governmental organisation to be awarded a grant in the second UK Aid Direct funding round.
Food for the Hungry UK will be working on a food security and nutrition improvement project in the town of Namatumba, in the eastern region of Uganda.
The 36 month-long project is expected to reduce the incidence of malnutrition in over 3,000 children under the age of 5 and women of reproductive age through:
- improved nutrition and hygiene practices learned in a care group system;
- reduced food losses and spoilage, and access to diversified foods using post-harvest handling technology and kitchen gardens;
- improved access to treatment for acute malnutrition; and by
- promoting economic empowerment of women using Village Savings and Loan Associations
