Online Request for Expression of Interest, project Stunting Free Villages

Max Foundation wants to prevent child mortality in the most efficient and effective way. Childhood stunting is one of the most significant impediments to human development, globally affecting approximately 162 million children under the age of 5 years. Stunting, or being too short for one’s age, is defined as a height that is more than two standard deviations below the World Health Organisation (WHO) Child Growth Standards median.

Max Foundation recently developed an approach to prevent childhood stunting by combining the outcomes of WASH, SRHR and Nutrition. The approach “Stunting Free Villages” has been developed based on the experience of CLTS. The CLTS approach was found as one of the most successful approaches for promoting “Open Defecation Free (ODF)" villages, extensively practiced in the developing countries as well as in Bangladesh. 

Project objective

For  addressing  the SDG goal, Max Foundation wants to start a new project per 1 January 2016 called "Stunting Free Villages" and already selected three existing PNGO's of Max Foundation for Expression of Interest. The overall objective of the project is to create a sustainable environment for each of the villages in the project area for healthy growth of under 5 children so that no new stunting episode occurs among under 2 children. The objective of the partnership with the PNGO's is implementation of the ‘Stunting Free Villages’ project.
