Celebrating the power of women and peanuts in tackling malnutrition

Wearing a dress that celebrates International Women’s Day, Elyse Musandji, president of one of the community nutrition groups in Masi Manimba, Democratic Republic of Congo, teaches members of a neighbouring community how to produce milk from peanuts. Peanuts are a locally grown product which are typically roasted and sold as a roadside snack. But they can be turned into a nutritious milk – which children love – by soaking them in water, grinding them in a mortar and filtering the paste.

"We used to have a lot of malnutrition cases here, but Action Against Hunger taught us that one way to tackle this was to turn peanuts into milk, rather than just eating them.

"We can grow the peanuts easily, and the children love to drink the milk. The only problem is that we can’t keep it very long, because it goes off quickly. If we had a refrigerator, we could make more of the milk and keep it."

Background

Acute malnutrition is a major public health problem across the Democratic Republic of Congo. UK aid has supported the government of DRC and aid agencies including Action Against Hunger to provide emergency nutrition response programmes across DRC in 2010 and 2011.

In some areas, the communities have taken the ideas that Action Against Hunger brought to them, and organised themselves to tackle malnutrition from the ground up – by forming their own co-operative farms and self-support groups.
