In Burkina Faso, respectively 27.3% and 7.6% (National Nutritional Survey, 2016) of children under 5 years of age are suffering from chronic and acute malnutrition due mainly to inadequate nutrition and diseases.
In response to this, a national strategy has been deployed to improve Young Child Diet and Nutrition (YCDN) practices.
FXB in action
Conducted in partnership with the Morija Association, the overall objective of this project was to improve the nutritional status and practices of the inhabitants of the commune of Nobéré in Burkina Faso, especially targeting women and children.
A major effort was also made to raise awareness of good nutritional practices among several thousand inhabitants through various channels, such as the cinema and forum theatre.
Our work in Burkina Faso was made possible thanks to the support and trust of the Orange Foundation.
