Food & Nutrition
Nutritious food means creating sustainable food sources through agricultural programs and nutritional trainings, to ensure that children are well-nourished and healthy. In 2019, 45,115 malnourished children were enrolled in nutritional programs and monitored to ensure healthy growth.*
Good health is the foundation of a child’s life. Access to essential services, vaccinations, medical clinics and training in disease prevention provide better health for children and their communities. In 2019, 36,628 people benefited from medical consultations and treatment in health facilities.*
Access to safe water through well-drilling, pumps and training in hygiene and sanitation decreases child mortality and frees up time for education, instead of water collection. Thanks to improved water sources, 68,125 people now have safe water for drinking and cooking.*
Access to education, classroom repairs, school supplies and training for teachers and parents provide children with opportunities for a better future. In 2019, 34,711 parents learned about the importance of education and how to support their child’s learning.*
We advocate for child rights and encourage children to speak up against abuse and injustice. By educating families about child rights they are better equipped to keep their children safe. In 2019, 126,189 people learned about child rights and protection issues.
