SPRING/Senegal

Map of SenegalSPRING’s work in Senegal delivered both nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive agriculture interventions that complemented and reinforced one another in three regions of the country: Kaolack, Fatick, and Kaffrine. Together with our partners, we raised awareness of and demand for good nutrition-related practices as well as helping to facilitate access to the key inputs and services essential for good nutrition. The SPRING/Senegal office pursued these objectives via a multi-sectoral approach, operating with and through existing health, agriculture, and food security programs to address undernutrition in the target areas. We used several capacity building and social and behavior change communications (SBCC) approaches to drive organizational change toward nutrition including the use of community video, radio, and other mass media and social mobilization campaigns.

Our partners in Senegal were made up of various nutrition, agriculture, health and economic growth collaborators and included: Naatal Mbay, Yaajeende, CLM, FEPROMAS, ADAK, SYMBIOSE, APROFES, UPCL, YAKHANAL, Caritas, ChildFund, World Vision and Plan International (among others).

Map of SenegalAu Sénégal, SPRING a réalisé des interventions agricultures spécifiques à la nutrition et sensibles à la nutrition qui se complétaient et se renforçaient dans trois régions du pays : Kaolack, Fatick et Kaffrine. Avec des partenaires, nous avons augmenté la connaissance et la demande de bonnes pratiques liées à la nutrition et nous avons facilité l’accès aux intrants et aux services essentiels pour une bonne nutrition. Pour répondre à la sous-alimentation dans les zones ciblés, SPRING/Sénégal a poursuivi ces objectifs par le biais d'une approche multi-sectorielle, en travaillant avec des programmes existantes dans les domaines de la santé, de l’agriculture, et de la sécurité alimentaire. SPRING a utilisé du renforcement des capacités et de la communication pour le changement social et comportemental (CCSC) afin de conduire le changement organisationnel à l’égard de la nutrition. Ces approches comprenaient les vidéos communautaires, la diffusion des messages sur la radio, et d'autres campagnes de mass média et de mobilisation sociale.

Nos partenaires inclus des collaborateurs dans les domaines de la nutrition, de l'agriculture, de la santé, et de la croissance économique, tels que: Naatal Mbay, Yaajeende, CLM, FEPROMAS, ADAK, SYMBIOSE, APROFES, UPCL, YAKHANAL, Caritas, ChildFund, World Vision, et Plan International (entre autres).
