Program overview

“Let’s grow more healthy eaters, readers and leaders!” is the message and invitation from National Geographic’s “Traveler of the Year” and internationally recognized nutrition educator Tambra Raye Stevenson, Founder & CEO, Women Advancing Nutrition, Dietetics, and Agriculture (WANDA),   She was further honored to announce the launch of “#IamWANDA” women and girls’ nutrition advocacy campaign at the World Bank/International Monetary Fund Spring Meetings in Washington, D.C. USA.

The #IamWANDA campaign follows the release of Tambra’s crowdfunded and highly-anticipated bilingual book series, Where’s WANDA?: Little WANDA Finds a Cure for Nana. Stevenson invites audiences to “buy one and give one” copy of the book to a girl, school, library, or health clinic; share their #IamWANDA story, and follow the journey of Little WANDA (Ruby Rose Reed) on social media. The first bilingual book—in English and Hausa—addresses gender equity, health, well being, and nutrition related to the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. Now Stevenson is on a mission to raise awareness about the role of women and girls as food heroes, called “Sheroes” in agriculture and nutrition to build and sustain healthy communities and economies through her nonprofit called WANDA (Women Advancing Nutrition Dietetics and Agriculture) based in Washington, D.C. and Nigeria.
