Collaborating across Borders: SPRING/Sierra Leone Staff Visit SPRING/Guinea for Learning Exchange

In May 2017, SPRING organized a trip for staff from the Feed the Future-funded Entrepreneurial Agriculture for Improved Nutrition (EAIN) activity and SPRING/Sierra Leone to visit the SPRING/Guinea project in Faranah, Guinea to learn about the community media approaches used to promote improved maternal, infant and young child nutrition (MIYCN) and nutrition-sensitive agriculture practices, especially in households with pregnant women and young children. This three-day learning visit allowed staff from both countries to share social and behavior change communication (SBCC) program experiences from each country, and to participate in site visits to communities in Faranah to observe community video in action. The SPRING/Guinea team staff shared SPRING/Sierra Leone how SPRING/Guinea works with Digital Green on community video and Farm Radio International on interactive radio programming.
