Reaching Agents of Change project Tanzania. End of project meeting report

This is an overview of the Reaching Agents of Change (RAC) project. RAC was implemented by both Helen Keller International (HKI) and International Potato Center (CIP). This initiative aimed to advocate for orange-fleshed sweet potato (OFSP) in Tanzania, among other countries. The RAC program built an advocate network to advocate for increasing investment for OFSP, including OFSP in national nutrition policies, and for increasing demand and awareness of OFSP across Tanzania. RAC provides a platform for stakeholders from the national and local governments, donor community, NGOs and private sector to coordinate their investments and interventions to contribute towards addressing vitamin A deficiency though dietary approach focused on OFSP production and utilization. In this overview, project stakeholders and the RAC advocates, focused on two key elements: 1) Presenting overall activities implemented and major project achievements; and 2) discussing the proposed exit strategy for continued OFSP advocacy across the country.
