Refresher Course for Community Hunger Fighters in Wardha, Maharashtra

Nutrition awareness programme is being conducted as a complementary activity to the nutrition sensitive agriculture interventions conducted as a part of Farming System for Nutrition (FSN) study under the research programme on Leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition in South Asia (LANSA) at 5 villages in Wardha, Maharashtra. For sustainability of the nutrition awareness programme, “Community Hunger Fighters (CHF)” approach was undertaken in mid 2016 under the guidance of Dr. Rama Narayanan. In this approach each village selected 5 adults consisting of men and women who were trained in nutrition literacy through two residential training workshops. They were also supported with follow up. Endline evaluation of the programmes was conducted which revealed the need for a refresher course.

 Full report of the course can be found here.
