French term or phrase: Centre d’Appui Social, d’Accompagnement familial et Nutritionnel (CASAN)
Hi everyone,

I am translating a raising awareness guide for the charity Action against Hunger and one of the acronyms is CASAN Centre d’Appui Social, d’Accompagnement familial et Nutritionnel.

Here is the whole segment "Programme multisectoriel d’accompagnement familial pour la prise en charge globale et la prévention de la malnutrition aigüe modérée (MAM) dans un Centre d’Appui Social, d’Accompagnement familial et Nutritionnel (CASAN)."

I have been searching online but I cannot find any official English equivalent.

Although, I will contact them to double check, if you would have any input it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

ps: I thought of Social Support Centre for family and nutrition assistance.

Explanation:
Because It is preceded by "Ce", you could translate it rather than retaining the French. However, in view of the use of capital letters to explain the acronym, I would keep the French and put square brackets around the translation. As both "appui" and "accompagnement" can be translated as "support", one "support" will do. No caps for the translation as it is unofficial.

neutral  B D Finch: Perhaps, but your source is a poor translation: "trainings, [sic] support to [sic!] income-generating activities".
