1. Project Background:
The USAID funded Scaling Up Nutrition Technical Assistance (SUN TA) Project is a cross-ministry and multi-donor program to reduce stunting in Zambia through the implementation of the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) 1,000 Most Critical Days Program.
SUN TA provides support and direct technical assistance to sub-national local government departments in target districts to plan, implement, coordinate, and monitor integrated nutrition-sensitive and nutrition-specific activities to reduce the rate of stunting among Zambian children under two and improve the nutritional status of pregnant and lactating mothers. USAID has identified two main objectives that address stunting, including (1) Adequate Quantity and Quality of Dietary Intake among Target Groups; and (2) Adequate Health Conditions for Biological Utilization of Nutrients. SUN TA interventions increase access and availability of safe, diverse, nutritious food; adoption of better child feeding and household hygiene practices; and access to improved health, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). The project prioritizes sustainability by improving intra-household joint decision making and building the capacity of local government and their stakeholders to ensure coordination, accountability, and learning, following the Scaling Up Nutrition model.
To increase access to basic sanitation and sufficient safe water in all the districts of operation, the USAID SUN TA project is in the process of constructing 300 new water points, 26 water reticulation systems (water schemes) and rehabilitation of 700 water points between 2021 and 2022 across the target areas. Within this framework of the project, DAI engages qualified Zambia-licensed and legally organized businesses and organizations with expertise and demonstrated experience within this field to supervise and implement the borehole drilling and rehabilitation activities. The works are performed in one or more of the thirteen (13) SUN TA project supported districts in Northern, Luapula, Central and Copperbelt provinces.
