Bangladesh Kendua

Chronic malnutrition is a major challenge in Bangladesh where 57% of the poorest segments of society do not meet their nutritional needs. A recent survey conducted near the target area for this program revealed that child stunting was over 40% in children 0-2 years of age.  The Bangladesh Kendua program is focused on improving nutrition to address these issues and increase food security.  This will be achieved through increased knowledge and practice of kitchen gardening with a focus on environmentally friendly agriculture practices.

World Renew and local partner SATHI have an excellent history of implementing integrated community development programs that are built around a self-help group structure, similar to the approach being taken in this program. 

The overall goal of the program is: Improved food security for 1080 households in Kendua by September 2020.
