One in every four children in Malawi is stunted due to poor dietary habits. Afikepo is a European Union-funded Nutrition Programme that aims to reduce stunting in children under five through Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture. It also aims to improve feeding and nutrition and enhance the nutrition security of women of childbearing age, adolescent girls, infants, and young children. This newsletter has some of the latest stories on how children and families have benefited from Afikepo so far.
