Porridge Mum Operational Research for Action Against Hunger’s Intervention

Published: 18/03/2021
Deadline : 05/04/2021

Among AAH beneficiaries of the Food For Peace (FFP) programme in North of Nigeria, in Borno state, Pregnant & Lactating Women (PLW) who are identified as “vulnerable“ qualify for admission into the Porridge Mum programme. The nutritional status of their children is not an admission criteria for participating in Porridge Mum activities.

In addition to the pregnant and lactating women, community members including older women, community leaders, youths and spouses of the beneficiaries are participating during the health education, hygiene promotion session and cooking demonstrations.

A total of 3,600 participants among whom 1,500 are PLW are targeted in this Porridge Mum programme in 2020-2021. The average number of children attending the porridge Mum are 2,100, however this figure changes as some children graduate from the program once they are beyond 24 months of age. Some vulnerable host community members i.e. 249 PWs have also been recently enrolled as new beneficiaries and engaged in Porridge Mum activities.

The objective of Porridge Mum programme is to favour positive outcomes in terms of nutritional status of children below 24 months of age. The Theory of Change of this programme is that “women learn about good nutrition and hygiene practices and adopt the porridge mum nutritious recipes at home” thus AAH expects this approach to prevent children from becoming acutely malnourished.

The duration and intensity of the intervention lasts 8 months in total within the total duration of FFP programme from June 2020 until April 2021 (11 months).

All interested consultants should send Expression of Interest electronically before 5th April 2021 to: with subject “PD-ABU-01361-001_EoI_E4A RESILAC Decentralized Information Management Assessment Consultancy Service” in order to receive the full ToR.
