We are excited to be once again working with Andrea at ProyectoCAN. The wonderful nutrition program at ProyectoCAN has be developed into a comprehensive 4 day workshop. This project is very hands on and has lots of information presented in engaging manner. Their video on the history of malnutrition in Guatemala come in English, Spanish and many of the indigenous languages. This is super important as many of the families in the Santiago Atitlan area do not speak Spanish. Having a engaging video in Tzu'tujil makes the program one of a kind. The program comes with 2 colourful cook books that focus on infant nutrition and getting more greens into the diet. These cook books use pictures to assist the reader to follow recipes as many of the woman who will be taking this program do not read or write. The recipients of this program will learn valuable nutrition information that will help to combat the rampant malnutrition in Guatemala and how to prepare inexpensive meals that mirror all the wonderful information they have just gleaned. In the morning Andrea was teaching our future teachers of the nutrition program. In the afternoon our newly minted teachers practiced on a group of our university students. These university students can then use this information in their future careers. This group consisted of 3 primary education teachers, 4 nursing students, a law student and an agronomist.
