1. PROJECT BACKGROUND

Action against Hunger (AAH) is currently implementing humanitarian multi-sectoral emergency response services with the support from the American people through USAID/Food for Peace (FFP) to vulnerable internally displaced persons (IDPs) and host community members affected by the insecurity in Borno State, North-Eastern Nigeria across 2 targeted Local government Areas (Maiduguri Municipal Council (MMC) and Jere).

The objective of the project is to improve household food security of IDPs, returnees and the most vulnerable individuals affected by conflict and insecurity especially of women and children through integrated cash transfer schemes and behavior change interventions. The AAH/FFP intervention (Porridge mum) is expected to address a total of 1,500 pregnant women, lactating mothers with children under two years of age with most urgent food and nutritional intake needs. The porridge mum aims to provide a platform for pregnant and lactating mothers of children under five years old to learn about and discuss issues related to IYCF, with particular emphasis on increasing their knowledge on how to prepare nutritious foods from available local resources; promote breastfeeding practices; and personal and household hygiene as well as health-seeking behaviors. Following the experience and learnings from the ongoing Porridge Mums activities, the project has been continuing the activity in a modified format in an attempt of promoting optimal and positive IYCF practices.
