Siavonga Nutrition Group is a non-profit community based organization whose aim is to assist in improving nutritional conditions and food security for the villages, peri-urban and urban areas of Siavonga, Zambia.
Siavonga Nutrition Group was founded in 1982 by a Danish Doctor after he observed that large numbers of children were dying of malnutrition related diseases.
The group initially provided nutrition education to mothers of malnourished children and founded a skills training centre, where the mothers were taught tailoring and designing as well as agriculture.
Today SNG continues empowering women’s groups from each village, and providing a set of tailored intervention which are sustainable and life enhancing.
SNG currently delivers workshops in sustainable farming, breastfeeding awareness, food processing, health and nutrition education, group saving, income generating activities, as well as a local volunteer development programme.
