  Uganda has Outstanding and Lasting Outcomes

Our 4-year project in Uganda provided training to 15,000+ mothers, fathers and health workers, who care for 30,000+ young children. The outcomes? Incredible! Highlights include:

♦ Cognitive stimulation from parent to child increased from 30% – 76% (doubled!)
♦  Linguistic stimulation increased from 23% – 64% (tripled!)
♦  Showing affection during feeding (responsive feeding is important to
preventing malnutrition) increased from 54% – 91%
These findings (and many more) showed sustainability 1½ years AFTER we were there!

  Supporting Swaziland
