Mother support group leader Gladys Nagilai and other mothers with their budding tomato crop in a greenhouse in Lodwar, northern Kenya. The crops were planted by a mother support group. There are 13 mothers in the group who meet once a month to learn from each other about infant and child nutrition. During their meetings, nutritionists also teach them about infant and
child feeding.

The support group members actively train other mothers in the community
about feeding and nutrition. The greenhouse farming project – which is
supported by UNICEF and the IOM with funding from the UK – is underway as a means of improving their household food security. Some of the crops are sold and what’s left over is used by the mothers.
