Better Nutrition using Low cost methods

Uganda’s Cost of Hunger study found that for every USD $1 spent on nutrition, Uganda can save USD $30 through improved health and economic benefits. 15% of child mortality is caused by malnutrition, and almost 82% of childhood undernutrition cases go untreated by the health care system in Uganda. While Childhood undernutrition and hunger cost Uganda up to UGX 1.8 trillion every year. Greater shillings for nutrition will turn into gains in healthy and productive life years.

In order to “Transform peers to lift lives”, YOMHI-Uganda through the structure of Young Champion Mothers at the community level are equipped to deliver short classes during agreed Club days every month for Young Mothers and other community members. The sessions include the use of the readily available supply of local foods to prepare nutritious meals to address malnutrition among pregnant mothers, their children, and families.

This client-friendly sharing approach is a series of tailored practical training sessions focusing on the production of legumes and cereals using backyard gardening. Pieces of training are planned to address challenges of malnutrition using low-cost solutions within all resource environments. Solutions are collectively provided by peers and mentors practically within the context in which the mothers had presented their challenges.
