How do we do it?

Our objective is to prevent chronic malnutrition from happening. That is why we work to prevent, stop or reduce low growth rate in children under 2 years through a behavioral change in the mother and the family.

Our main objective is to strengthen skills and competencies in women and their families regarding nutrition and children development during the three years of participation in the program "Dando la talla" (hit the growth mark), in order to prevent chronic malnutrition.

This program has five axes:

  1. Hygiene and sanitation
  2. Nutrition
  3. Loving upbringing
  4. Promoting awareness of growth monitoring
  5. Access to health services
