FRI-FNSD was contracted by WFP to conduct nutritional impact assessment of its community outreach and training on micro-nutrient fortification pilot projects. These projects aimed at improving the nutritional status of women and children by promoting flour fortification and consumption of iodized salt. The pilot projects also provided an alternate source of income for the women groups through milling, fortification and re-bagging and sale of iodized salt as a business. The pilot projects had the overarching goal of fighting against micronutrient deficiency while increasing income of women groups in their respective communities.
