Making grassroots nutrition movement financially sustainable

Making grassroots nutrition movement financially sustainable

Islamabad : Representatives of more than 30 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) benefitted from a day-long capacity-building training on fortification awareness and proposal writing, a crucial skill vis-à-vis mobilisation of funds from international donors as part of the larger goal of being able to play a sustainable role in the fight against malnutrition.

Organised by the ‘TheNetwork’ for Consumer Protection, the training had Parliamentary Secretary for National Health Services Dr. Nausheen Hamid as the guest of honour. Addressing the participants, she hoped that the training would contribute to ending malnutrition at the grassroots level and expressed the government’s commitment to supporting the civil society in its efforts to address issues pertaining to food fortification and nutrition, which has already been declared an emergency in Balochistan.
