Challenge

80 children & young people w/disABILITIES in Familias Especiales (FE), receieve special education, therapy & social services but need nutrition. Their families are below poverty levels & cannot provide basic nutrition lacking the resources. Most are single mother households w/ little or no education & are mostly unemployed. Having children with disAbilites puts extra strain on the families economic survival. Yogurt con Amor can provide the nutritional support needed, plus jobs for young people.

Solution

Lunch & breakfast provide essential nutrition to children & young people w/ disAbility in FE. When children are nourished they learn better. The yogurt project sells yogurt in the community to support the lunch program & at the same time provides yogurt for 80 children & young people who receive special education, therapy and social services in FE. Yogurt con Amor also offers employment possibilites to young people with disAbilities, giving added economic support to the families.

Long-Term Impact

80 children & young people will receive lunch & yogurt/ fruit, on week days. Their abilities in therapy, special education & social services will improve. Families will be motivated w/extra nutrition, to give more attention to their children. Young people will be employed by the Yogurt project & give economic support to their families who are below poverty level. The person w/disAbility will be an active part of their own life project, creating awareness of their abilities with Yogurt con Amor.
