SUPPORTING INSTITUTIONALIZATION OF KENYA
SCALING UP NUTRITION YOUTH NETWORK PROJECT
SUN Youth Network is a platform that convenes, coordinates and builds capacity of the youth, youth-led and youth-serving organizations to drive the nutrition and food security agenda, for Kenya to be free from malnutrition in all its forms in line with Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development ,agenda 2063 and Scaling up Nutrition (SUN) priorities.
OAY under the Kenya Youth SUN Network seeks to partnerships to scale up a youth coordinated Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) platform under Kenya Scaling Up Nutrition Civil Society Alliance to advocate for better nutrition, capacity build young champions in every sector, run demonstration projects and drive accountability and resources allocation.
Through financial and technical support, we seek to create a robust a platform for coordinated adolescents and youth engagement in nutrition and food security agenda in Kenya. We believe that tapping on the youth and youth organizations networks and skills will accelerate their meaningful involvement in prevention of malnutrition which could be further advance in later stages of lives. Enhancing nutrition knowledge in the youth organizations that seek to reach, access and serve young people, in their diversity, will enhance the ability of such organizations to apply effective strategies for the diverse nutrition and food security needs and situations of those young people.
