Food insecurity and malnutrition
Your donation directly impacts a kid’s life. It is the first pillar of our assistance program which consists in relieving a family from the negative impact of food insecurity. In some of the countries we serve, malnutrition touches one in five children. It is an impediment to the countries’ social and economic development. Providing food allows children to attend school and secure their own future.
School snacks and micro-enterprise
As part of our education program, we have implemented snack distribution initiatives in multiple countries so children can focus on learning. The program has been developed in partnership with Accesso and provides an outlet for locally grown produce such as peanuts. It feeds into our community-based economic development and micro-enterprise initiatives.
The food and education programs are key initiatives that are designed to break the poverty cycle in countries where both the poverty rate and political instability are really elevated, as is the case in Haiti, Guatemala, or El Salvador. It allows us to provide a better future for the next generation.
