The majority of the world’s poor are farmers, yet millions are malnourished.
In Rwanda, this disconnect between agriculture and nutrition is striking: 85% of Rwandans are farmers, yet nearly 40% of young children are malnourished.
This simple concept, that food itself does not equal good nutrition, is at the heart of our mission.
We empower families to grow and eat nutritious food because well-nourished children get sick less often, perform better in school, and are more likely to escape poverty. We invest in mothers because we believe it is the best way to have a lasting impact on the health of the whole household. Our innovative model delivers a sustainable solution to malnutrition that treats the root causes, not just its symptoms.
