Challenge

A Vietnamese child's diet typically does not provide enough energy, nutrients and micronutrients for their optimal growth and development. As a result, one third of children under-five suffer from stunted growth due to chronic malnutrition and twenty percent are considered underweight. Because malnourished children grow up with worse health and lower education achievement, the Vietnamese Government has made the reduction of malnutrition a priority.

Solution

While milk supply is a good nutrition solution, it costs much higher than micronutrient products in improving children's health conditions. Therefore, Aid for Kids is going to provide the children with micronutrient products that are easy to distribute and have been proved by GAIN and NIN to tackle malnutrition in Vietnamese children effectively.

Long-Term Impact

Long-term output: Increase weights and heights of 1,000 children in normal development speeds Decrease the total number of undernourished and stunted children in Vietnam.
