What is LIFT

Nutrition in the Delta - Maternal and child cash transfer launch in Labutta
Description: LIFT has designed programmes to reduce stunting through multiple approaches. A significant intervention is the introduction of maternal and child transfers (MCCTs) in Rakhine, the Delta and the Dry Zone. Mothers are given a monthly stipend to buy nutritious food and access health services over the course of the first #1000 days of a child's life. In addition to cash, pregnant mothers learned about the importance of a varied and nutritious diet. The pilot in Rakhine was very successful, where stunting rates decreased by 5% in villages where LIFT is active. 54,000 mothers and children are now enrolled in MCCT projects. See this clip by Myanmar International TV from the launch of the MCCT project in Labutta. Save the Children Myanmar
