Commitment to Action

Better Nutrition through Homestead Food Production Plus

Commitment by

Helen Keller International

In 2008, Helen Keller International (HKI) and its partners committed to improving the health and nutrition of children under two and pregnant or lactating women in two districts in the western region of Nepal. The project seeks to address the region's lack of access to nutrient-rich foods by combining HKI's signature Homestead Food Production (HFP) model with the promotion of Essential Nutrition Actions (ENA), to encourage women and young children to eat a varied diet necessary to achieve optimal nutritional status. The project aims to reach 860,000 community members.
