Testimonial


“The most worthwhile aspect of the project was seeing the children growing and gaining weight. I started to put into place new creative ideas to increase enthusiasm during feeding time. For example; stickers for those who finish their meal and rewards for mothers who answer nutritional questions correctly. Teaching the mothers the importance of good nutrition and how to cook meals on a budget at home will hopefully help increase the project sustainability whilst improving their families overall health. This trip has been an incredibly rewarding experience. It has been a privilege to work and live with such kind-hearted, selfless people. The biggest lesson I have taken away from this trip is that if the smallest problems get you down, you should consider what you have and what others don’t have.”
