“When a King has Good Counsellors, His Reign is Peaceful”

<h2>A Call to Action for Our Children and Our Communities’ Futures</h2>

To draw leaders’ attention to the problem of stunting and their role in improving young children’s nutrition outcomes, SPRING/Ghana produced a 24-minute advocacy video. The video explores the extent of the problem of stunting in northern Ghana, describes what can be done by leaders and household heads to improve nutritional outcomes during a child’s first 1,000 days, and features leaders in northern Ghana who are working to influence their communities (and particularly male heads of households) to take action for a brighter future. An accompanying discussion guide is available for facilitators to use in leading a 3-4 hour discussion session following the video that helps the leader identify how they might take action in their communities.
