Noelie Ouedraogo, Chairperson of the SAGL-Taaba association, Sir-Noghin neighbourhood in Ouagadougou

“The malnutrition situation is really very worrying, with one in every three children suffering from malnutrition in this neighbourhood. Sir-Noghin is a neighbourhood on the outskirts, access to information and to the food people need to give their children is a problem. Lack of knowledge on best feeding practices is the main cause of malnutrition. Some people pay for imported industrial food products, but very few do in these neighbourhoods.”
