Participatory Approaches to Reproductive Health and Nutrition: module 1: Participatory Learning and Action, Rwika Family Life Training Centre, Kenya, 20-31 October, 1997

Publication year: 

This Manual describes a two week course on Participatory Approaches to Reproductive Health and Nutrition held in Kenya for a Danida-funded Community Based Nutrition Programme (CBNP). The project began with 14 Family Life Training Centres where severely malnourished children were rehabilitated and their parents taught about nutritious meals, health and farming. In 1994, the project committed itself to a new community-based strategy after evaluation showed that the institution-based project had little impact on the community and many children relapsed. The project aims to help the community to identify the causes of malnutrition and find ways to improve the situation; to promote and support activities using community resources; to enable district level staff in different sectors to perform their nutrition-related duties; and to collaborate with local NGOs.
