Binta Haruna, the Leader of the Hasken Mata Women Empowerment Group, demonstrates healthy food preparation.

Binta Haruna is the Leader of the Hasken Mata Women Empowerment Group in Ningi, Bauchi State. She demonstrates healthy food preparation for women in her group to improve nutrition in her community. Women are encouraged to source locally available food groups - sometimes from their homestead gardens - to make healthy meals. Like the homestead approach, sustainable farming is a way to take climate action and ensure families and communities have healthy meals. 

Breakthrough ACTION Nigeria supports women empowerment groups like Hasken Mata by building their capacities around maternal, newborn, and child health and nutrition and sustainable approaches like homesteading. Breakthrough ACTION Nigeria has had a USAID-funded 8-year cooperative agreement to lead social and behavior change programming.
