Our featured resource for the month

WE’RE GROWING GREATNESS!

This month we’re featuring: The Grow Great campaign

Why we love it?: Using data to mobilise policy makers, stories to inspire the public, communities of practice to support Community Health Workers and mom & baby classes to support parents, the Grow Great campaign seeks to galvanise South Africa towards a future where no child is unjustly denied the opportunity to reach their full potential.

How to participate?: Here are a few ways in which you can get involved

  • Spread the word that 1 in 4 children in South Africa are stunted.
  • Tell your friends and family how important it is that children get healthy food and safe, loving environments to grow and reach their full potential.
  • Support and celebrate pregnant women in your community, and protect their rights to breastfeed anywhere, anytime (including in the workplace!).
  • Support and encourage mothers to exclusively breastfeed for 6 months.
  • Encourage parents to add eggs to their children’s diets from age six months.
  • Hold our leaders accountable to providing communities with the basic services e.g. good quality water & sanitation that are essential for growing a nation of greatness.
