In the village of Bourdounga (Balléyara), Niger, more than 200 women often meet in “mother-to-mother” (MtM) support groups. In January 2016, these women gathered to learn how to produce and store enriched flour, a blend of pulverized staples such as millet or sorghum mixed with other locally available and easy-to-process vitamin-rich foods, such as cowpeas and peanuts. The measure of the REGIS-ER project's success is embodied by healthy children like Souley, whose mother is a member of the MtM group.
