In a new article from USAID, the agency shares stunning photos and success stories from the Sahel region of Niger where the USAID Wadata Food Security Activity is being implemented.
NCBA CLUSA partners with Save the Children on the five-year USAID Wadata Project. Wadata, which means “prosperity” in Hausa, represents the vision of collaborating with individuals, households, communities and government as co-creators to generate growth.
The Wadata project serves three purposes: enhance collective action to address food, nutrition and water security; increase the capacities, assets and agency for improved access to diverse food at all times of the year; and improve nutrition, health and hygiene and sanitation of pregnant women and young mothers, adolescents, children under five and their families.
NCBA CLUSA’s role supports all three technical purposes and cross-cutting approaches, and leads support to local governance committees to address food, nutrition, water security and natural resource management challenges as well as provide technical guidance across a range of specialties including women’s access to finance, water services, natural resource management, and increased livestock production.
