Summary

This 2020, we are planning to continue with this project. This is a challenging time for all of us, and we can't stop helping the kids from Cuncani! In 2018, we eradicated anaemia again among the primary school children! Help us again to keep providing 5 nutritious lunches per week + hygiene kits for them and their families. They need it!

Challenge

Cuncani is a community in the High-Andes of Urubamba (Cusco) that remains isolated and without presence of the State. Malnutrition is one of the many problems they face. The lack of availability of the products and diversity of them, makes it very hard for the parents to feed their children properly. The national Lunch Program (Qali Warma) just provide breakfasts so their lunches in their houses are based on carbohydrates and tea.

Solution

For years, we have proved that daily lunches at school, makes a lot of difference to their lives. We have eradicated anaemia, and children in this community have better health than others in the surrounding who don't receive proper nutrition. The results are based on medical check-ups that are part of the project and allow us to successfully prove that in situations like this one, lunches project make a big difference for the development of the children who live under poverty.

Long-Term Impact

This project was the beginning of our work in the community and from that moment, we have been able to work in other initiatives. Following our Development Model, we believe, a better health is the base for Human Development. Besides proving that this project works, starting from this year, we will be working in the education area, in the school, taking our work to another level. Our organization has a long term plan in the community to promote Responsible Human Development.
