Nutrition and Food Security
Empowering communities provides sustainable nutrition
Esperança is predicated on the belief that the most effective path to well-being is to provide the necessary initial resources that empower individuals to sustain their own health. We invest in education and food-related micro-business that directly provide adequate sources of nutrition while simultaneously yielding profit from excess eggs, milk, grain, livestock, and crops.
These profits are often used to purchase additional food, replace the mud walls of homes, send children to school, gain access to clean water, or obtain needed medical care.
The following 2016 outcomes are notable in improving food security:
1,763 agricultural producers received training to increase and expand crop yield
122,576 pounds of food were distributed to 4,280 individuals
845 heads of households attended training on nutrition and improving their diets.
