Healthy Village approach
We focus on changing behaviour for better health. A nutritious, diverse diet; improved sanitation; safe water; and hygiene (or WASH, also specifically for babies). We create demand for products that make being healthy possible. These include handwashing devices, homestead gardening, and improved care for mothers and children under five, such as breastfeeding and postnatal care.
The Healthy Village approach focuses on the outcome: child health. As NGOs we often focus on one aspect. What makes our approach special? We combine food and nutrition security, WASH, and care to tackle stunting and improve child health. COVID-19 has shown the need for increased community resilience. Healthy Village supports this, by empowering local communities to be champions of their own change.
