Expanding Household Food Production

In this third year of a three-year partnership with BGR Helen Keller International is working in Vietnam to expand its Enhanced Homestead Food Production (EHFP) program to an additional 600 households, including 40 Village Model Farms (VMFs) in Hoa Binh and Lai Chau provinces. The project aims to implement the following key activities: (1) to purchase agriculture inputs such as seeds and seedlings for the 600 project households and 40 VMFs in Lai Chau and Hoa Binh provinces; (2) to provide hands-on training for improved home gardening techniques; (3) to conduct nutrition and agriculture education activities, including water, sanitation, and hygiene; (4) to track progress and provide evidence-based adjustments as needed during the project. The project hopes to improve year-round production and consumption of micronutrient-rich foods for 600 target households, particularly among women and children under two; to improve maternal and child nutrition behaviors in line with the World Health Organization’s essential nutrition and hygiene guidelines; to generate additional household income from sale of excess food; and to empower women to contribute to the improved nutrition and wellbeing of their families and their communities. The project is expected to benefit 600 households, or a total of 2,400 people. Year three of a three-year project
