Happy Family Board Game

Mango Tree Uganda developed a board game together with the other partners and stakeholder of the EaTSANE project. The Happy Family Board Game combines key lessons from participatory action research that researchers across all work packages developed. The goal of the board game is to show the interconnectedness of decisions in agriculture, nutrition and value chains in a playful way.

The Happy Family Board Game is designed for farming households and school students in Uganda and Kenya. The game can be used as a starting point for training and education activities to open up discussion between the game participants. To create a strong learning outcome, we recommend an experienced moderator to facilitate the playing of the game and related discussions around sustainable farming, marketing and nutrition practices.

To learn how to facilitate and play the EaTSANE Board Game, you can have a look at the instruction leaflet or watch this video (download):
