Victoria Kariathi: Recipient of the Future Rural Africa Female Researcher’s Grant 2024.

Victoria is a Ph.D. student specializing in Human Nutrition at the Department of Human Nutrition and Consumer Sciences of Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA) in Morogoro, Tanzania. She is also a researcher in nutrition training at the Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre (TFNC). Her academic and career path is driven by a profound passion for implementing community-based nutrition interventions aimed at catalyzing changes in nutrition behaviors. Victoria’s doctoral research centers on investigating the relationships between food literacy and dietary intake behaviors in both rural and urban settings of Tanzania. She is dedicated to pioneering innovative approaches that promote healthier dietary practices and contribute to the overall nutritional well-being of communities. With the support of the Future Rural Africa Female Researcher’s Grant, Victoria will work with smallholder rural farmers to explore the nexus between food literacy and land use decision-making. Her research endeavors aim to contribute to the body of knowledge surrounding nutrition and sustainable agricultural practices. Moreover, her work seeks to inform policies, programs, and interventions aiming at promoting sustainable agriculture, proper land use, and improved food and nutrition security in rural areas.

We are looking forward to our collaboration and the research findings!

We wish Victoria much success in her project and want to thank all the other applicants!
