Mkoba wa Siku 1000 “THE BURNING FIRE THAT WILL NEVER STOP”



Mkoba wa Siku 1000 “THE BURNING FIRE THAT WILL NEVER STOP”

Mkoba wa Siku 1000 is a kit that aims to influence positive nutrition behaviors to improve maternal and child nutrition.
The kit was developed by Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre (TFNC) in collaboration with Mwanzo Bora Nutrition Program (MBNP). It was later adopted by the National Nutrition Social Behavior Change Communication (NNSBCC) Consultative Group and launched during the National Multi-sectoral Nutrition Action Plan by the Deputy Permanent Secretary President’s Office: Dr. Zainab Chaula for use as a National tool.
In order to ensure uniformity, quality and consistency during the use of Mkoba wa Siku 1000 throughout the country, Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre (TFNC) in collaboration with Mwanzo Bora Nutrition Program (MBNP) organized a six days Training of Trainers (ToTs) workshop on the use of Mkoba wa Siku 1000 .
The main focus of the training was to develop a National team of facilitators that will thereafter facilitate the training on the use of Mkoba wa Siku 1000 to Zonal and Regional ToT teams who will cascade the training to Community Health Workers (CHWs) all over Tanzania.
Participants to the training were from World Vision Tanzania (WVT), Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC), Doctors with Africa (CUAMM), BAYLOR, JHPIEGO, ENGENDER Health, and AMREF Health Africa on behalf of Micronutrient initiative (MI). Others were from Tanzania Girl Guides Association, Integrated Rural Development Organization and PACT. Hosts were MBNP and TFNC. TFNC and MBNP had already developed a Training Of Trainers Facilitator’s Manual and the Instruction Manual on the use of Mkoba wa Siku 1000 that were very instrumental during the training. The TOT workshop was organized at the end of March 2017, and officiated by Dr. Joyceline E. Kaganda, the Acting Managing Director of Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre.
