LIFT Call for Proposals: Digitisation of Nutrition/1,000 Day Messaging

Deadline: 1 February 2018

The Livelihoods and Food Security Trust Fund (LIFT) is seeking applications to implement a project that digitises nutrition and 1,000 day messaging across LIFT’s programmes, with the overall aim of reaching women and children in the first 1,000 days window and ensuring improved nutrition outcomes. The proposed activities should start no later than May 2018 and not go beyond 18 months.

LIFT’s Fund Board thus requested a digitisation of nutrition messages – packaged and presented within the concept of the first 1,000 days – to target women across Myanmar. This messaging could be part of an app, existing or new, but should demonstrate significant reach, including to rural, poor women. It will also be important that the service provider can demonstrate, with time that the nutrition messaging has an influence on women’s knowledge, attitude and practice. Ultimately, the messaging should improve behaviours that lead to good nutrition outcomes.

The Livelihoods and Food Security Trust Fund (LIFT) is a multi-donor fund established in 2009 to address food insecurity and income poverty in Myanmar. LIFT’s purpose is to strengthen the resilience and sustainable livelihoods of poor people in Myanmar. LIFT’s purpose-level outcomes are increased income, decreased vulnerability, improved nutrition, and pro-poor policy developments.

Intervention Areas

LIFT will accept proposals that address seven key components of this objective:

  • Messaging
  • Access
  • Reach
  • Quality assurance
  • System strengthening
  • Assess impact
  • Wider contribution

Funding Information

The provisional allocation for LIFT’s work to support this Call is up to USD 800,000, for one grant.
