Food​ ​Security​ ​Focused​ ​on​ ​the​ ​First​ ​Thousand​ ​Days​ (SEGAMIL)

 

SEGAMIL is a USAID Food for Peace program that focuses on reducing chronic malnutrition rates in eight municipalities in the departments of Totonicapan and San Marcos. The program addresses food utilization, access, and availability in vulnerable communities. Activities integrate health and nutrition, agriculture, sustainable environmental practices, animal husbandry, microenterprise, and local governance.

SEGAMIL supports poor and vulnerable Guatemalan families, using a diversified approach to support targeted households, including conditional cash transfers; community and municipal strengthening activities that target agriculture and health priorities; social and behavioral change; income generation activities focused on small value chains, enhancing basic financial and business skills; and incorporating Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) practices.
