The Urban Nutrition Project in Kathmandu has worked from 2006 to 2009 with a psychosocial approach. At the end of the first project phase the effectiveness of the approach was assessed and lessons learned formulated. The Swiss NGO Terre des hommes, which supports the nutrition project in Nepal, was specifically interested to analysing how this approach supports the a) empowerment of families of malnourished children; and b) empowerment of volunteer health promoters.
