We have formed 38 children’s clubs where 1,240 children are participating in activities dedicated to child well-being. Activities include; dancing, singing, drama, football; as well as education about child rights and protection, HIV and AIDS prevention and environmental protection.

Community healthcare workers are actively engaged in nutrition activities such as mobilizing the community on the importance of exclusive breastfeeding and antenatal care. These activities are contributing to a reduction in the prevalence of stunting in children under five in the Tubehoneza community.
