Challenge

The 'Centro Genesis Nutrir' is located in a slum where families face difficult economic situations, live in poor housing conditions and children receive low nutritional and educational services. 30% of children under 5 suffer from malnutrition and therefore have symptoms as: anemia, insufficient weight and size and weak health.

Solution

The project will provides integral nutritional support and treatment for children and educational and prevention work with families.

Long-Term Impact

It is important to reach children under age 5 to ensure an appropriate development and strengthen their future social, cognitive and affective abilities. Once that goal is reached, the child will grow up to achieve his or her full potential.
