Community Connector: Linking communities to services through collaboration, learning and adaptation
The USAID/Uganda Community Connector (CC) Project assists local governments in improving the nutrition of women and children and the livelihoods of vulnerable populations by implementing interventions that integrate nutrition and agriculture at the community and household levels. In 2011, 33.4 percent of children in Uganda were deemed moderately to severely malnourished and
38 percent of the population fell below the international poverty line of US$1.25 per day. The CC project focuses on the role of women in the household, especially regarding food security, decision making processes and the use and distribution of resources.
In this video, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) mission in Uganda highlights its approach to collaboration, learning and adapting through the CC project. The project’s phased and modular approach catalyzes the discovery and assimilation of new ideas for greater project impact and sustainability.
