<Short movie>Catherine Kalembe; Eliminating Malnutrition one at a time in Uganda.


Uganda has been experiencing high rate of malnutrition as well as high birth rate. Children are given birth to when they are underweight or malnourished. That is why SAA has developed different interventions with a pillar of nutrition sensitive agriculture to try and mitigate the issues around malnutrition in both children and women of reproductive age.

Catherine Kalembe from Kamuli district is a SAA-trained agro processor, entrepreneur and trainer. She is popular in her village for the nutrient-dense porridge made from amaranthus (whose seeds are edible as grain) that she grows in her backyard garden. She also makes tapioca, garri and biofortified flours that she sells to customers both at the village level and in Kampala. She now awaits the opportunity to get certified by Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) so that she can sell her products in and outside the country.
