‘Eat what you grow’ changes nutrition beliefs and behaviour in Sierra Leone

Inspired by participation in SUN CSN’s Learning Route in Rwanda, SUNI-CSP Sierra Leone has changed beliefs and behaviour on nutrition in one rural community.

Vulnerable farmers in a community in northern Sierra Leone are starting to consume some of their own produce and change key nutrition habits as a result of a project inspired by SUN CSN’s learning exchange programme.

In November 2016, Sierra Leone’s Scaling Up Nutrition and Immunisation – Civil Society Platform (SUNI-CSP) was one of nine national civil society alliances (CSAs) that participated in the week-long Africa Learning Route exchange visit to Rwanda.
