In Kafue district, Zambia, a group of women has been working tirelessly to combat the prevalent malnutrition affecting their community. Children in the area suffered from malnutrition, specifically vitamin A deficiency, leading to weakened immune systems and impaired vision. Determined to make a change, the Chikoka Women’s Group planted orange maize for the first time in 2010 when HarvestPlus introduced the vitamin A-rich variety to the region.
