We recently published our Breastfeeding and Nutrition Videos for mothers and caregivers (17 videos in all) in Ta’ang. These videos are now available in four languages spoken in Myanmar, including Burmese (or Myanmar)—the official language spoken by two-thirds of the population (over 40 million people). The other languages are Shan and Kachin.
Our partner for the translation and narration of these videos is Save the Children International–Myanmar. The project is aimed at improving the nutrition of women and children in Myanmar as part of the Livelihoods and Food Security Fund (LIFT) program. The importance of this program is shown by country data which indicate that one-third of children under age five are stunted or seriously malnourished.
