REGIS-ER Project Featured in USAID's FrontLines Magazine
URC, through the Resilience and Economic Growth in Sahel – Enhanced Resilience (REGIS-ER) project led by NCBA CLUSA, is working to increase the resilience of chronically vulnerable communities in targeted agricultural areas in Niger and Burkina Faso. URC leads the project’s health, nutrition, and WASH activities.
URC organizes mother-to-mother groups—like the one Hassiatou Abdou mentions in the FrontLines story—and schools for husbands to promote behavior change for better health and nutrition; a rational use of food; dietary diversification; access to fortified foods; better access to health and nutrition services; and improved water, sanitation, and hygiene.
URC strengthens communities to manage their own health needs and reinforces strong community links. Additionally, URC is integrating cross-cutting issues, such as gender, to improve women’s health and nutritional status, thereby enhancing their social and economic potential.
