We organize our work around one overarching objective: to reduce chronic childhood malnutrition in Mayan communities.

The cornerstone of our programs is empowerment. We develop the leadership and problem-solving skills of women, men, and youth to address both the dietary and environmental root causes of childhood malnutrition. We focus on preventing malnutrition from occurring in the first place by emphasizing good nutrition during the first 1000 days – the short window of opportunity that includes pregnancy and the first two years of a child’s life. Helping communities provide good nutrition and a healthy environment during this critical window of opportunity provides a lifetime of lasting benefits to children.
