    Project Overview:-

    Growth through Nutrition – is USAID’s five-year multi-sector nutrition project in Ethiopia (2016-2021). Save the Children in partnership with its Government partner’s (FMoH, RHB, RB of agriculture and natural resource and livestock, BOWE and BOE) and International NGOs and local NGOs drives the implementation of Growth through Nutrition using a powerful, multi-sector platform comprised of evidence-based nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions.

    The purpose of the USAID Growth through Nutrition activity is to improve the nutritional status of women and young children in the four productive regions with a focus on the first 1,000 days from pregnancy to a child’s second birthday—the critical window of opportunity for a child’s growth and development.

    The development hypothesis for this Activity is: if sustained access to diverse, safe, and quality foods is
    achieved and optimal nutrition, WASH, and agriculture behaviours are adopted and quality nutrition services are utilized and access to WASH products and services is improved and multi-sector coordination and GOE capacity to implement effective nutrition and WASH programs is strengthened, then the nutritional status of women and young children will be improved.

    Growth through Nutrition has four essential cross-cutting elements: Gender equality and women’s empowerment, a rigorous learning agenda, sustainable approaches, and convergence/overlay of multi-sector nutrition interventions (e.g. agriculture, livelihoods, education, health, humanitarian assistance) and WASH activities in the same geographic areas.

    USAID Growth through Nutrition will be implemented in 100 woredas 80 Agricultural Growth Program (AGP) and 20 foods insecure woredas of the four big regions (Amhara, SNNPR, Oromia, and Tigray) of Ethiopia.
