      1. Dear Fatima Almas

        Thanks for showing your interest in the program. This is a project called Nutrition in Mountain Agro-Eco Systems (NMA). The project aims to address the issues of malnutrition through sustainable agriculture in Mountain Areas of five countries. Pakistan is one of them. In Pakistan we are targeting Haripur. This page is an intranet. Where you may join if you want to know something about nutrition or agriculture. The Pakistani members of this page have an opportunity of capacity building program starting in the first week of April in Islamabad. For this reason they are applying for this training. All the cost of the training will be borne by the project. The participants have to give their time but the condition is this that they have to be with us during project time and they have to do some field work in Haripur which is called their micro interventions MIs.So they have to design their MIs and submit their applications.So this is the process.

    in case of any ambiguity please contact with Konrad Hauptfleisch or with me


  15. Mr. Konrad Hauptfleisch and Ms. Shazia,

    Thanks for sharing the information


    MK Abbasi


  16. Thanks for the today's good session of training . The information is useful for practical development of proposals on  micro interventions  to be developed by RSP's. The session was very important for the participants from various sectors. It benefited me to developed micro intervention proposal on kitchen gardening in Beer U/C. 

    The People are poor and need awareness for sustainable agriculture with the use of organic forming for rich nutrients food production for the sustains of their lives. 

  17. Dear Shazia, Can you please guide ow to send you the mirco projec template

    1. Dear Amjad, the microproject template is needed only later when RSP training takes place. For now as per the application form you only need to give basic idea, what kind of project will it be, what will be target group, which area, how does it improve nutrution. Thats all. Once you will be selected for the course, this idea shall be more elaborate and budget shall be calculated. Does it it answer your question?

      1. Thanks Shaknoza


  18. Dear Amjad, Shakhnoza is correct that the template is not a requirement at application stage.  But as we are running very close to the deadline of the Pakistan training, and we would like to get a good idea of the micro-interventions in order to make our final decisions - and also to present some of the ideas at the conference as examples, I would appreciate more complete ideas before the time.  For that to happen, the templates are a good idea.  I also shared clarifications on te template with Shazia Hina yesterday.  Shazia can share a copy of the template with you, and it can be used to strengthen the applications.  I hope this helps?


    1. Amjad, I see that Shazia has already shared a copy of the template below in the attachment list. you can use it from there.

    2. Thanks Konrad, i have discussed it with Shazia thnks again 

  19. Nutrition

    RRFW will work with young women to guarantee healthy living so that they may grow up with confidence and maintain a positive body image, while exercising control and will power. Working in alignment with the UN MDGs and UN standards of nutritional requirements, participants will learn about necessary caloric consumption and the necessity for balanced diets. Participants will learn how to respect different eating requirements and different financial abilities that drive others’ eating abilities.  Nutritionists, dieticians, and physical therapists/trainers will educate participants on the importance of a healthy balanced lifestyle, and help them pave a promising future.

    • Balanced eating methods
    • How to be an educated consumer in creating meals for families
    • The affects of media on persuading people to eat junk food
    • The different nutrients and benefits/disadvantages to locally available foods
    1. Dear Aniqa Khurshid, which micro-intervention did you choose? Did you plan as you wrote above here?
