As part time, I manage the NIFAM Project - Nutrition Intervention Forecasting and Monitoring. NIFAM’s objective is to identify and implement cost-effective interventions to improve diets and reduce different forms of malnutrition sustainably. The project focuses on the efficacy of nutrition interventions given the complexity of food systems and nutrition issues. Interventions will be collaboratively identified, modeled, implemented, and monitored. My role is to coordinate research activities, organize workshops and to oversee the financial management and project reporting. The rest of my time, I have the usual multiple jobs of a mother: Chef, facility manager, teacher, nutrition and fashion advisor, cleaning lady, hair dresser, gardener, taxi driver, tour guide,etc. Also, I love dancing and eating delicious food.
