Sénégal

Titre : Providing Food and Nutritional Assistance in Senegal - Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Numéro de projet : CA-3-P009465001

Pays/Région : Senegal

Début-Fin : 2021-01-14 // 2023-03-31

Description
This project aims to help vulnerable populations cope with the negative effects of COVID 19 and the restrictions put in place by the Senegalese government to fight it. This project seeks to help vulnerable households avoid resorting to negative coping strategies, minimize the risk of acute malnutrition and prevent micronutrient deficiencies from being exacerbated in pregnant and lactating women. This project also helps stabilize and improve immediate access to the nutritious foods required, so that beneficiaries can truly participate in the project initiatives. Project activities include the following : (1) distributing unconditional cash transfers to targeted beneficiaries during the hunger gap and during the COVID 19 crisis ; (2) providing mothers of students associations with training and capacity-building sessions to increase income-generating activities and boost their incomes ; and (3) improving farmers’ access to food security by providing assistance to create community assets. This project expects to reach 8 regions and 20 departments, as well as 806,188 beneficiaries.
