SPRING’s community-led video approach to improve nutrition in Niger and Burkina Faso received over 6,000 votes in Zilient’s 2017 Resilience Awards, earning it a third place finish among over 40 submissions.

SPRING worked with key populations in the African Sahel to create locally owned and operated video production "hubs" that produced video messaging to encourage improved nutrition and hygiene behaviors.

“We hope that the visibility and recognition from our selection as a finalist and third place finisher will help the hubs promote themselves to achieve greater sustainability and strengthen the livelihoods of these local entrepreneurs, and the resilience and well-being of their extended families and neighbors,” said project director, Carolyn Hart.

Zilient’s inaugural award was established to highlight unique and compelling projects that are making a positive difference around the world.
