Challenge

Right now in Bogota exists more than 47000 cases of malnutrition in children of school age that do not access to any feeding during the whole day. There are some helps that try to reduce the population hunger rates, but these are not enough. According to the National Health Institute of Colombia (INS), each 33 hours a 5 years old kid dies because of starvation. If you help us achieve the project goal, 50 children in Bogota will have secured daily feeding for a year.

Solution

With the $10,000 raised with your donations, we will provide monitoring and control for the children through food rations, anthropometric evaluations to determine their nutritional state. Also, we will promote good practices in education, habits and healthy lifestyles and we will strengthen partnerships for timely health care. And we will work with parents and caregivers to diffuse information about the program and make it sustainable.

Long-Term Impact

This Project will secure in long-term a complete nutrition for 50 children and by doing that we will be allowing their return to education, we will fight against hunger and we will reduce the child abuse. With your help and nutritious meals, these kids will be able to dream again and have new opportunities.
