The USD75 million Amalima Loko project seeks to elevate the livelihoods of more than 67,000 vulnerable households across five districts of Zimbabwe’s Matabeleland North: Binga, Hwange, Lupane, Nkayi, and Tsholotsho.

The project looks at improving human health and livelihoods, with the health and nutrition component (Purpose 3) looking at improving the adoption of care, nutrition, health, and WASH practices for women of reproductive age (WRA) and children under five (CU5) years.
