Sahel, with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is implementing the Advancing Local Dairy Development in Nigeria (ALDDN) in conjunction with private sector companies, as a catalytic intervention for building sustainable supply chains and fostering local sourcing of fresh milk by dairy processing companies. ALDDN is catalyzing a vibrant local dairy sector in an inclusive way that improves the livelihoods, productivity, nutrition, and empowerment of smallholder women dairy farmers and the communities in which they live.
