19 community focal persons have completed training on enrolling beneficiaries for USAID’s Food for Peace grant to 6500 internally displaced people in Cameroon’s Fako and Meme divisions of the South West Region. Nascent’s trained enumerators collected baseline data from a sample of 266 Displaced Persons, drawn from 19 project communities in preparation for the distribution of aid, nutrition and hygiene training in June/July 2020.
The objective of the project is to increase food security among 1500 IDPS and their household members. Specifically, the project seeks to reduce household Hunger and increase knowledge on good nutrition and hygiene practices among target beneficiaries: female-headed IDP households, households with pregnant and lactating women, elderly IDPs and households with IDP children.
Nascent Solutions is currently implementing similar USAID Food for Peace grants in food insecure regions of Sierra Leone, Cameroon and Liberia
