The TOPS Program shared a video they made in the field which captures some of the key elements at the community level of a SPRING nutrition project in southwestern Uganda. In particular, the video documentation focuses on the use of community video groups of Great Mothers, Fabulous Fathers, and Wise Women, along with community mobilization for nutrition based on the Community Action Cycle. Participants were asked to "spot" the key elements that the video hopes to convey and further discuss how the combination of community-led video with community mobilization can contribute to improvements in the nutritional status of women and children. The TOPS Program staff also discussed their field experience in the production of this video.
