How do we do it?

We are focused in preventing chronic malnutrition. Therefore, we implement strategies that allow effective prevention and  advancement of this condition in children under two years of age.

The best way to do so is by educating and empowering the mother to make the right nutritional decisions for herself and her family. Through a three year program we provide her with the tools and information on: nutrition, hygiene, child rearing, family income and health.
