The Nawiri program aims to sustainably reduce persistent acute malnutrition in Turkana and Samburu counties, not only during regular seasons but also during shocks. This goal is being pursued through the Girl H and Transforming Masculinity component, which is central to FCDO’s efforts. This involves driving social behavioral change and implementing interventions related to Health and Nutrition, resilient livelihood, and making transition pathways for youth, ultimately contributing to the reduction of persistent acute malnutrition in our communities.
