Edesia's mission is to treat and prevent malnutrition for the world's most vulnerable children; our vision is a world in which all people have access to the basic human right of food and nutrition. We are committed to assuring that vulnerable individuals no longer suffer and die needlessly from malnutrition - a completely preventable condition. We treat all children as our own, and produce for them the lifesaving tools they need to overcome malnutrition and thrive. We act now, because the cost of inaction is too great.

Thank you all for your continued support of our work to meet the nutritional needs of the most vulnerable children around the world. This year has been a difficult one in many parts of the globe. In Haiti, the rebuilding efforts have been slow and laborious. Fortunately, we have been able to have an impact. With your help we have sent nutritional supplements to hundreds of children in need.

When our team went to Haiti recently, we were able to follow the shipment and its distribution. We are pleased to report that programs depending on these important supplements are successfully providing nutrition supplements (Supplementary’Plumpy®) to young children who are most at risk.

Funds are still needed to complete the project so please help us spread the word.

Mesi (thank you) for being a part of the solution.

Industrial Revelation is thrilled to announce that we have successfully met our fundraising goal!

We are so grateful to all of you for your commitment to our work bringing Plumpy'nut to the children of Tanzania. The end of this fundraising campaign marks a crucial step in our progress.

We are proud to announce that the factory building has now been completed and is ready for the installation of machinery. We are one GIANT step closer to achieving our goal.

You can see photos of the factory in our Field Diary http://www.industrialrevelation.org/fieldiary_readmore/diary07_19_10.html

And most importantly-- stay tuned! We are not done yet!

We are still working hard to meet the nutritional needs of the most vulnerable in Tanzania. Check out our new project which provides nutritious meals and access to Plumpy'nut for children in Ward III- the largest children's cancer ward in Tanzania. http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/nutrition-for-children-in-cancer-ward-in-tanzania/

We continue to be committed to the children of this country and we couldn't do it without you so thank you for your support.

A heartfelt thank you from Tanzania,

Habari Zenu! (Greetings!) from Tanzania

Habari Zenu! (Greetings!) from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania where Industrial Revelation's two-woman team is happy to take a few minutes from our busy work to give you an update on the wonderful things we are achieving here. Our dream for Tanzanian children to access quality nutritional foods that can save their lives is on the horizon!

On the factory side, all of the ingredients for Plumpy'nut® have been sourced, and over half of them are from right here in Tanzania. Two men from our Tanzanian factory team are currently in France, being trained in production and engineering so they are ready to work the highly technical machines when they are installed. And the factory building itself is 75% complete.

Don't worry, we have not left our focus on the prevention of malnutrition behind. After a first round of research studies, which Industrial Revelation organized, managed and led on the ground, we now have enough information for the research and development team to create a preventative product, based on Nutributter®, that will be specifically for the Tanzanian need. That product will also be launched later this year.

There is still much work to do. A third staff member from the Tanzanian factory will soon join her colleagues for training in international quality standards. And we still have lots of work ensuring that public and private delivery systems will be well established to get these products to the kids who need them the most.

So we thank you for your continued support as we see this exciting project through.

The energy here is great— we are creating jobs and saving lives! We encourage you to stay up-to-date by checking the staff field diary on our website.

Asanteni sana (Thank you all very much!)

Judith and Noel
