Summary

As a result IP children generally have poor nutrition because of parents' lack of awareness and financial difficulty to buy foods rich in nutritional value.

Challenge

The main challenge is to improve the health status of IP children living in IP communities of Salumay, Upian, and Kalun Barak in 6 months period by providing the children with daily food with good nutritional value as prescribed by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). The other challenge is to educate the IP parents on food and nutrition using the principle of "Food Always in the Home" or FAITH gardening.

Solution

The first approach is to provide immediate solution to the malnutrition status of IP children. The second approach of teaching the IP parents on FAITH gardening method is a long term respond. That is why education is very important on the part of IP parents.

Long-Term Impact

The adoption of FAITH gardening method will make the IP families and communities self-sufficient on basic foods and vegetables that are rich in nutritional value especially for young children in the community. What is important is that they will adopt the method, practice it, and make it as a way of life in the field of farming and agriculture.
