Location: Yobe
Organization: Action Contre la Faim France (Action Against Hunger France)
Type: Consultancy
Career Category: Monitoring and Evaluation
Themes: Food and Nutrition Health Protection and Human Rights

Project Background
Rationale for the Project:

  • The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Northeast Nigeria continues to impact civilians negatively. In Yobe state, conflict affected households have experienced socioeconomic and human losses and struggle to build their resilience following the loss of household assets and being in a situation of displacement; a majority have remained displaced for over years. Although, significant populations have returned from the government approved camps to their homes in Yobe state, conflicted affected households continue to require support to improve their situation of nutrition and food insecurity.
  • ACF has launched the ‘Scaling up Nutrition in Yobe’ project being implemented in collaboration and with the support of Yobe State government to address the humanitarian crisis through an integrated approach that integrates WASH, nutrition and health services, including CMAM and IYCF support and food security & livelihoods.
  • The multi-sectoral approach aims to contribute towards the reduction of morbidity and mortality rates among pregnant and lactating women and children under five years of age, by improving their nutritional status through the early prevention, detection and treatment of malnutrition and communicable diseases and improved access and demand driven provision of maternal and child health services within support health facilities.
  • The initiative will also aim to improve hygiene behaviors and access to sanitation solutions, as well as providing improved access to adequate water to targeted beneficiaries, facilities and communities in pilot LGAs. Importantly, efforts are made to strengthen systems through improved capacity for skills and knowledge development of the health worker force at the state level and coordination, collaboration, advocacy among health and nutrition partners, government and other relevant humanitarian stakeholders for the overall improved provision of services.

Action Against Hunger works to save lives by combating hunger and diseases that threaten the lives of vulnerable communities, through nutrition, food security, water and sanitation, health and advocacy.

Action Against Hunger saves lives while building long-term strategies for self-sufficiency:

  • Lifesaving impact in 45+ countries
  • 6,500+ field staff assisting more than 14.9 million people in 2015
  • 35+ years of expertise in contexts of conflict, disasters and food crises

Our global efforts save hundreds of thousands of lives each year, but millions of malnourished children remain in need of lifesaving treatment.

Why Our Work Matters

Deadly malnutrition claims the lives of 1 million children each year, even though it’s:

  1. PREDICTABLE: We know where and when to expect acute malnutrition
  2. PREVENTABLE: We know how to help children stay healthy
  3. TREATABLE: Therapeutic ready-to-use foods can help save millions
  4. AFFORDABLE: Just $45 can provide a child with lifesaving treatment

You can trust Action Against Hunger. Here’s why:

  • Highest four-star rating from Charity Navigator, ten years in a row
  • Listed as an “A”-rated organization by CharityWatch
  • We're accountable, meeting all 20 Better Business Bureau standards
  • Earned Guidestar's Gold Participant Seal for our commitment to transparency
  • Awarded the “Best in America” seal by the Independent Charities of America

What Others Are Saying

Don’t take it from us: here’s what others have to say of our work:

“Action Against Hunger is a NGO that is action oriented. I can truthfully say that they deliver services to those in need and are very present on the ground. They make lasting positive change in the lives of people. I worked for them in four countries and have a good understanding of how they work.”

– Holimata, Great Nonprofits Review

“Action Against Hunger is in war-torn countries that many fear to tread. They are technical people… that forgo the comforts of modern life to assist local populations and refugees at the most fundamental level in the most dangerous locales. They provide nutrition, healthcare, sanitation, and food sustainability. They train populations to be self-sufficient. Although these dedicated men and women want to eliminate the need for their services, humanity is not willing and forces them to witness the most heinous actions.”

– President Nelson Mandela, Recipient, Action Against Hunger Humanitarian Prize 2004

“As a field worker and a partner... I recommend Action Against Hunger as an effective and important organization. Through their integrated approach and expertise in nutrition, food security and water, sanitation and hygiene they are saving lives and improving them for years to come in some of the poorest parts of the planet.”

– Water Advocate, Great Nonprofits Review, Dec. 8, 2011

“Action Against Hunger—the title speaks for itself. This is a remarkable organization with a staff of energetic, enthusiastic and deeply committed people who are determined to make a difference to the lives of thousands of people. There are millions who do not have access to clean water, food, health services or education. They are condemned to a grinding life of poverty with no choices. Action Against Hunger is changing this. Their training programs are improving the quality of life and health and, above all, bringing hope to thousands in underdeveloped countries. I commend them for their outstanding work and welcome the opportunity to express my support.”

– Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus, Recipient, Action Against Hunger Humanitarian Prize 2006

“I’ve been covering humanitarian crises since the early 1990s and have often been impressed by the work of Action Against Hunger. They are among the first to respond when tragedies unfold, and they work to ensure that communities have a fighting chance to get back on their feet... The nightly news can often seem overwhelming, but it’s important to remember there are effective ways to fight hunger and overcome poverty, and along with groups like Action Against Hunger, you can become part of the solution.”
