In Educar y Crecer we work to strengthen the education of 500 children from vulnerable contexts in Argentina in 11 Student Learning Centers with innovative and effective educational programs. Still, due to worsened socio-economic conditions, we have found the need to supplement the nutrition of our students, as many have manifested to eat only once a day. Thus, we provide them with healthy snacks that include fruit and superfoods, specially designed to cater for children's nutritional needs.
The relationship between education & health is not a simple one. Poor health not only results from lower educational attainment, but it can also cause educational setbacks and interfere with schooling. Recent studies show that in Argentina malnutrition reaches 16,7% of children aged 5-12 years old. In the past year 2 million children suffer from hunger due to lack of resources every week, and 4.5 million children live in households, where due to economic problems, available food has been reduce.
Today we ask you to help us raise a total of USD5000 which will allow us to cover the costs of our nutrition program in september-december 2022. ONE HEALTHY SNACK IS WORTH USD1. You can donate one time or subscribe yourself to recurring donations. On behalf of the team of Educar y Crecer and our 500 students, THANK YOU!
The project will allow 500 children to have a good, healthy quality snack.
