Summary: 

Vodacom Tanzania and WFP have embarked on a partnership using “mobile money” to inform food-insecure communities about nutrition and health. Launched in 2012 in Mtwara region, the pilot project arranges for women to receive a monthly transfer to purchase healthier, more nutritious food. The cash is based on them attending a health clinic to learn about the importance of nutrition, particularly breastfeeding during a child’s first 1,000 days.
