Co-founded by Helen Keller – and guided by her fierce optimism and belief in human potential – the organization delivers life-changing health and food security solutions to build resilience of vulnerable families where the need is great but access to care is limited. In the US, Africa, and Asia, Helen Keller’s proven, science-based programs empower people to create opportunities in their own lives and build lasting change.
The purpose of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)/Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) funding for a Resilience Food Security Activity (RFSA) in Mozambique is to improve and sustain the food and nutrition security of children under two years of age in Zambezia, Livelihood Zone 5. The objectives of this project are to sustainably improve women’s nutrition even in the face of shocks and improve infant and young child feeding. Project activities will involve work at the individual, household, community and institutional levels to address the underlying causes of food insecurity and malnutrition by focusing on improving access and consumption of nutritious foods, whilst changing behaviors for better nutritional outcomes.

The COP will represent the project to all key stakeholders, government officials, and donors at coordination fora and other related seminars and meetings.
