Global Projects addressing Food

Better Nutrition, Better Learning
In a region where 63% of households are unable to provide the minimum caloric intake for their families, this project puts food on the table in Alto Beni, Bolivia. Women work collectively to produce more food, create nutritious & marketable food products and then sell them to the school breakfast program, ensuring children are well nourished and thus able to learn.
