Feed the Future Ethiopia Growth through Nutrition Activity was USAID Ethiopia’s five-year flagship (2016-2021) multi-sector nutrition and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) project which aimed to improve the nutritional status of women and young children in the four productive regions of Ethiopia: Amhara, Oromia, Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People’s Region (SNNP) and Tigray. The activity directly contributed to the development objectives of Feed the Future, the U.S. Government’s Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative, and USAID’s Multi-Sector Nutrition and Water Strategies, as well as the Government of Ethiopia’s priorities, strategic plans and programs. Save the Children led the implementation of Growth through Nutrition in partnership with the Government of Ethiopia and various partners (Tufts University, Jhpiego, Land O’Lakes, World Vision, Population Services International (PSI), and The Manoff Group).
