Company Description
Stichting SNV Netherlands Development Organisation (a foundation established under Dutch law), registered at Parkstraat 83, 2514 JG The Hague, The Netherlands, [represented by SNV in Uganda] hereinafter referred to as “SNV” is a not-for-profit international development organization that applies practical know-how to make a lasting difference in the lives of people living in poverty. We use our extensive and long-term in-country presence to apply and adapt our top-notch expertise in agriculture, energy, and WASH to local contexts. SNV has an annual turnover of €130 million, over 1,250 staff in more than 25 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. We are proud to be a not-for-profit organization that uses project financing to implement our mission. This requires us to work efficiently and to invest in operational excellence.
In its new Strategic Plan period (2019 – 2022), SNV will more explicitly aim for systems change during project preparation and implementation - by strengthening institutions and kick-starting markets that help many more to escape poverty beyond our projects. We will continue to position ourselves as a premium organization, with decentralized management. For more information on our operations in Uganda and SNV generally visit our website: www.snv.org
1. Background
The aim of Sustainable Nutrition for All (SN4A) is to improve nutrition outcomes through adoption of agro biodiversity and improved dietary diversity and hygiene practices at intra-household level. Phase 1 of SN4A was implemented in four districts in Uganda and Zambia, reaching 4,900 households in Isoka and Chinsali in Zambia and 12,310 households in Kasese and Kyenjojo in Uganda. Phase 1 was successful in increasing both the average dietary diversity score (DDS) and minimum dietary diversity for women of reproductive age (WRA) in the 4 targeted districts. For women of reproductive age consuming an inadequate diet (food from less than 5 groups) dropped from 70% to 31% in Chinsali, from 78% to 30% in Isoka, and 79% to 15% in Kasese and Kyenjojo. The minimum dietary diversity for children 6-23 months also improved (mean IDDS of 3.3 improved to an IDDS of 4.7 at the End line). The number of children consuming an inadequate diet dropped from 68% to 21% in Chinsali, from 45% to 15% in Isoka, 46% to 7% in Kasese and 63% to only 3% in Kyenjojo.
In Phase 2, a focuses on improved nutrition in four existing districts and improved dietary diversity in two new districts, and on the sustainability, scalability and replicability of the model. SN4A is being implemented in 4 old districts and 2 new districts, Kasama in Zambia and Kakumiro in Uganda. The new districts were selected based on the criteria that they are different to the existing areas (i.e. more remote in Uganda and closer to an urban/town setting in Zambia).
SN4A addresses four critical pillars simultaneously;
1. Demand creation through triggering
2. Social and behaviour change communication
3. Nutrition sensitive agriculture
4. Strengthening governance.
Recognizing that improvement in nutritional outcomes are affected by gender roles within households, SN4A engages both men and women within the community to review and address intra-household decision making on food production, expenditure, consumption and allocation; access to resources and women’s time and workload that can often affect care practices Phase 2 will involve further integration of WASH, gender and market linkages (NSA) where relevant.
In Uganda, the project is being implemented in Kakumiro (new) District and two existing districts of Kasese and Kyenjojo. Most of the project deliverables are disseminated to households through DNCCs, SNCCs and Nutrition action groups (NAGs). The project has a target of 17,200 HHs and 86,000 people. But since implementation started the actual project reach is not known. It is very important to assess and examine the actual project reach Visa vie the targeted population through a mini survey by an independent team not implementers
