Summary

6 out of 10 children in Bogota will not grow healthy due to causes associated with malnutrition. This project aims to help the nutrition of 50 children in state of vulnerability, that will be benefited by the Food Bank of Bogota (Banco de Alimentos de Bogota) through food, education, preventive and community guidance.

Challenge

Nowadays, Bogota has more than 47.000 cases of malnutrition in primary school-age children that do not access to any food during the entire day. There are some people and institutions trying to reduce the hunger rates, but they are not enough. According to the National Health Institute of Colombia (INS), every 33 hours, a 5-year-old dies of starvation. If you help us achieve our goal, 50 children will have food security & nutrition for a year in Bogota.

Solution

With the $10,000 raised with your donations, we will provide monitoring and control for the children through food rations and anthropometric evaluations to determine their nutritional state. We will also promote education and healthy lifestyles habits, helping us strengthen partnerships with the community for timely health care. The Food Bank of Bogota will work with parents and caregivers to spread the information about the program and make it sustainable.

Long-Term Impact

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