Providing education and resources to empower women, improve nutrition

Children Action

Challenges

In Cameroon, 6 out of 10 regions have a prevalence of stunting or chronic malnutrition of more than 30 percent. However, the country does not recognize the magnitude of the stunting problem in children. Over 31 percent of children under the age of 5 are stunted.

It’s hard to grow and learn on an empty stomach.

We partner with mothers and families to provide education and resources to empower women, improve nutrition in the first 1,000 days of life, and secure the nutritional and economic status of the community as a whole.

25 percent

In Cameroon, 1 in 4 children under the age of five is stunted due to malnutrition.

1,000 days

Studies show the first 1,000 days of life, in womb through 24 months, are the most critical for cognitive development.
