Summary

In Bogota, 6 in 10 children will not grow up to be fit and healthy due to problems associated with malnutrition. This project aims to improve the nutrition of 50 vulnerable children through the Food Bank of Bogota (Banco de Alimentos de Bogota) through the provision of food, education, preventative measures and community guidance.

Challenge

Currently in Bogota there are more than 47,000 cases of malnutrition in primary school children, who do not have access to any food for the entire day. Various efforts have been made by both people and institutions to try to reduce this hunger rate, but it is has not been enough. According to the National Health Institute of Colombia (INS), every 33 hours, a 5-year-old child dies of starvation. By helping us to reach our goal, 50 children will have food security & nutrition for a year in Bogota.

Solution

With the $10,000 raised from your donations, we will be able to monitor and control the nutritional state of the children through food rations and anthropometric evaluations. We will also promote education of healthy lifestyles habits, helping us strengthen partnerships with the community in regards to health care. The Food Bank of Bogota will work with parents and caregivers to spread the information about the program and ensure that it is sustainable.

Long-Term Impact

By providing food security, 50 children will have greater nutritional health and will be able to go back to school. We will fight against hunger, as well as aiming to reduce the rates of child abuse in the Bogota area. Together we can help these children have new opportunities and dream again.
