Challenge

Nowadays, there is a 3.4% of malnutrition around the world. And this percentage doesn't get any better here in Colombia. According to DANE, There were 35% of kids presenting low birth weight back at 2012. In this country, 42.8% of the families have no access to the 3 daily meals. Even if the government is looking for improving their well-being, in the north of Bogota there are 30% of kids under 2 years old with malnutrition problems. We are about to help around 750 kids from these neighborhoods.

Solution

"Binomial, mother and son" provides a full way of nutrition, by strengthening the bounds between the mother and child, by giving food support, nutritional monitoring, education and support to these new mothers in socially vulnerable conditions. These activities and workshops stimulates their emotional resources and diligence in the exercise of motherhood, thus promoting healthy nutrition and development minors.

Long-Term Impact

Beyond making possible to have a society with good levels of nutrition, the main goal is to have about 750 kids with a better way to express and live their bonds in their families, by having a lovely and secured life with their mothers. The kid will learn to trust in himself, and at the same time he will be able to be related to the world in a healthy and calm way.
