School-based nutrition education and promotion of orange-fleshed sweetpotato in urban and peri-urbanareas of Kampala: Impacts and lessons learnt

Under the umbrella of the project “Promotion of Orange-Fleshed Sweetpotato Varieties through Schools in Urban and Peri-urban Communities of Kampala” two separately funded and implemented components were combined with the shared aim of increasing the production and consumption of OFSP varieties among urban farming households in Kampala, to increase intake of vitamin A among young children and other household members. Interventions of the two components were complimentary in nature with one focused on OFSP production technologies and the second one focused on nutrition 2 education interventions. The components were implemented during the same time period (2004-2006), worked with the same communities and involved significant coordination of activities. This is the evaluation report.
