We will provide nutritious food to 900 malnourished children by providing them with food as well as teaching their parents to grow and raise food in their homes in a cheap and sustainable manner and in so doing improve the lives of children of poor families who otherwise would grow as stunted individuals.
Malnourished children are at risk of early morbidity and mortality and when they grow up they will have difficulty in their lives later on due to the conditions they have when they were young. We need to boost their nutrition and health conditions early on. The problem now is multiple and we need to focus on direct giving as well as training the parents how to produce their own food in a sustainable manner.
We will provide regular supply of nutritious supplements as well as train parents to grow and raise their own food to enable them to provide for their children. We will also include in the training the practice of family planning because families here especially the poor are prone to having large number of children and this is not sustainable.
The well-being and growth of local communities depend on the health of their citizens and we can do this through focused intervention helping children with improved nutrition. We need to break the cycle of malnourishment and poverty in order to break also the downward social and economic spiral in local communities.
