Malnutrition continues to be a problem in Honduras. Lack of adequate nutrition affects children's physical growth as well as their cognitive abilities.
Friends of Education, Honduras facilitates workshops designed to maximize nutritional benefits to the family. Workshops include Raised Bed Gardening and Soya Workshops designed to inform women about the benefit of adding soy protein to their diet in the form of soy milk, soy cheese and adding soy flour to increase the protein content of their food. Participants of this hands-on workshop go home with a supply of soybeans to enrich their family's diet.
Your donation of $100 provides a Soy Workshop for a community and has the potential to make a difference in the lives of many families!
Another program dedicated to improving nutrition is the School Lunch Silo project. Our goal is to equip each school with one or two silos. Mothers in the villages volunteer to prepare meals each day for the children. Silo food storage is essential for keeping beans and rice safe until prepared.
Silos also help farmers keep their crops free from mildew and vermin. It is easier to keep the crops they produce on their small bit of land than to try to increase their lands production.
Your donation of $100 provides a Silo where ever it is needed.
