The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Save the Children and the Government of Ethiopia today celebrated the achievements of USAID’s multi-sector nutrition activity, Empowering New Generations to Improve Nutrition and Economic Opportunities (commonly known as ENGINE). The activity provided nutrition services for more than 5.6 million children under five years of age and reduced child chronic malnutrition in targeted areas by 16 percent.
We’ve seen in recent weeks that people here in Ethiopia want to be heard. I would like to urge everyone—both within the Government and on the streets—to find peaceful ways to talk to, and listen to each other. No one should ever die for peacefully voicing his or her opinion.
