Enterprise EthioPEA

In addition to helping farmers raise their yields, one of the chief goals of Enterprise EthioPEA is to produce a ready-to-eat food product for children suffering from malnutrition.

Enterprise EthioPEA

Enterprise EthioPEA supports the Ethiopian government's development plans for the agricultural sector and aims to dramatically increase chickpea production. It will develop a locally sourced, nutrient-rich, ready-to-use supplementary food (RUSF) to address malnutrition. With an initial target to reach nearly 40,000 Ethiopian children, ages 6-23 months, the World Food Program will leverage its mass distribution capabilities to assist those most in need of nutritional support through its existing operational network. Longer-term, all partners aim to expand the program to prevent malnutrition across the Horn of Africa.
