Many of the children we help are stuck in a multi-generational cycle of poverty. Their parents only make a few dollars a day. They don’t have an education and are stuck where they are. This is all they know and pass it down to their children.
Lack of proper nutrition plays a big part in the development of a child’s life. It can stunt a child’s growth, makes them more susceptible to many different diseases, reduces mental functions, makes them have low levels of energy, and can lead them to early death.
When a child is chronically hungry it is hard form them to focus on anything. We strongly believe that children do good things when they have a full stomach. Breaking the cycle of poverty starts with nutrition and then can build from there.
