The project will provide specialized nutritional support and recovery treatment for 150 vulnerable children under 5 years old that suffer from chronic malnutrition.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The ‘Centro Genesis Nutrir’ is located in a slum where families face difficult economic situations, live in poor housing conditions and children receive low nutritional and educational services. 30% of children under 5 suffer from malnutrition and therefore have symptoms as: anemia, insufficient weight and size and weak health.
How will this project solve this problem?
The project will provides integral nutritional support and treatment for children and educational and prevention work with families.
Potential Long Term Impact
It is important to reach children under age 5 to ensure an appropriate development and strengthen their future social, cognitive and affective abilities. Once that goal is reached, the child will grow up to achieve his or her full potential.
