Summary

At the Huasteca Potosina, Central Mexico region, the high marginalization impacts half of its habitants on food security. To help address the nutrition problems, our project aims to inform the Tenek indigenous families about the use of Spirulina Algae as nutrition supplement, and create strategies to integrate it into their daily diet. We provide them the necessary supplies to install a Spirulina Algae Farm and training to manage it, in order to guarantee the spirulina availability at low cost.

Challenge

485,000 indigenous people live in San Luis Potosi, most of them located in the Huasteca Region; they live in extreme poverty and cannot cover their basic daily food needs. Our project aims to help 50 indigenous tenek families in the Municipality of San Antonio in that area by providing information about the benefits to use Spirulina as nutrition supplement and guaranteeing the availability at low-cost consumption by providing equipment and training to install a spirulina farm in their community.

Solution

We perform an awareness program about the local nutritional problem and how the consumption of spirulina can help them, with the support of specialists in nutrition and health. Once the knowledge is interiorized, a group of people from the community are trained to install and manage the spirulina farm. The 50 indigenous tenek families will begin to see positive changes in their nutrition two months after the regular spirulina consumption.

Long-Term Impact

The 50 families impacted will notice improvements in their nutrition and health, mainly in children, pregnant women, elders and sick people. In addition, the project will also generate an economic impact from the production and sale of spirulina, which will ensure the sustainability of the farm and provide a monetary incentive to people dedicated to its management. We expect this impact will help to spread the benefits with other families and other communities will join to replicate the project.
