As per the agreement between the Rapid Results Institute, Inc. and Lifeline Nepal as the local partner, the Lifeline rendered the services in support of the Sunaula Hazar Din Project from October 15, 2013 to October 15, 2014.
The Government of Nepal and the World Bank had contracted the Rapid Results Institute to develop training materials and a quality assurance system for Sunaula Hazar Din Project (SHD). SHD is based in large part on the Rapid Results Nutrition Initiative, a framework for community organization based on the Rapid Results Approach (RRA).
The SHD project was a multi-year effort focused on improving the nutrition status of women of childbearing age as well as children under two. Over the course of project, thousands of Rapid Result Nutrition Initiatives were launched in 15 districts across Nepal. Each RRNI focused on changing key individual, household and community-wide behaviors and conditions that effect nutritional status.
During the initial scale-up phase of SHD (approximately October 2013- August 2014) the Institute had seek to develop and implement a training program and supporting materials that equipped 150 community-level (VDC) Coaches and 45 Supervisory Coaches with the basic skills needed to roll out the project. Lifeline was an essential part of this effort, providing logistical, technical support as well as participating in key training events as trainers, discussion facilitators and/or interpreters.
