Combat child malnutrition in Sopachuy

Combat child malnutrition in Sopachuy

We are glad to announce that we have a new funded project by Nicequest users. In this case, the project had the aim to reduce child malnutrition in the Bolivian community of Sopachuy.

Like we had said in the post that explain the project, the community of Sopachuy is in Bolivia and it has one of poorest IDH in Bolivia (rank 286 of 327). The child malnutrition rate in Sopachuy is high, for every 100 children, 24 have chronic malnutrition. Definitively, in Sopachuy exist social inequalities that affects negatively, physically and emotionally to children and the general population.

Together with Alcalá and El Villar, Sopachuy be a part of the Program of Territorial Development Area (ADT). This program together with the collaboration of the NGO Ayuda en Acción has created a project that will allow to articulate the resources and efforts of three micro-projects: Food Security and Revitalization of Local Economies, Quality Schools and Social Health Management.
