Challenge

Our program benefits young children and their families, with a special focus on families led by single mothers, throughout four municipalities of the Department of Chinandega. Save the Children's food security programs in Northwest Nicaragua has reduced chronic malnutrition from 23% to 10% since 2002.

Solution

We organize farmers who produce high-yield, non-traditional crops into groups, improve agricultural techniques, enhance small businesses in rural communities and work with communities to ensure the sustainability of programming.

Long-Term Impact

Save the Children mobilizes communities and partner organizations to address the root causes of food insecurity, targeting the most vulnerable, usually young children and their mothers.
