Joel Spicer, President and CEO, Nutrition International, says:
“At Nutrition International, we strive to do development differently, to break down silos and work with innovative partners. This ground-breaking partnership with Girl Effect will reach millions of adolescent girls directly, on their phones, with the information and support they need to take their nutrition into their own hands. Knowledge is power, and this partnership is designed to empower girls across Indonesia to improve their nutrition, and their lives.”
The partnership brings together Nutrition Leverage and Influence for Transformation (NLIFT), a Nutrition International initiative which integrates nutrition interventions into existing development programmes, and Springster, Girl Effect’s global mobile community for girls. Engaging, fun and interactive nutrition content will be highlighted and discussed on Springster through factual articles, stories from girls, quizzes, games and expert Q&As.
But our partnership isn’t limited to Indonesia. We’re currently exploring ways to introduce nutrition counselling into schools for adolescent girls in Nigeria. And to learn more about girls’ experiences and thoughts around nutrition and food security, Nutrition International has partnered with TEGA, Girl Effect’s Technology Enabled Girl Ambassadors.
