This year, we have decided to change things up a bit and provide additional support to ongoing projects in the following countries: Egypt, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Senegal.

Therefore, we are seeking to identify existing projects at the intersection of nutrition, nutrition-sensitive and resilient food systems, and the empowerment of women, with the primary goal of improving the nutritional status of children and mothers through improved diets. We’re looking for projects which have a strong and impactful innovative component.

We aim to have 1 project per country and to support this project we aim to mobilise between US$ 500,000 and US$ 1,000,000.
