Our Goal: Improve nutrition with vitamin A-rich orange sweet potato. The main reason people suffer from vitamin A deficiency is that their diets lack foods rich in vitamin A. From 2007 to 2009, HarvestPlus and its partners distributed vitamin A-rich orange-fleshed sweet potato (OFSP) to 24,000 farmning households in Uganda and Mozambique. Our goal was to encourage farming communities to grow and eat more of this nutritious food. We targeted women and children, who suffer the most from vitamin A deficiency.
