Nutrition volunteer Projects
Each nutrition project has its own goals reflecting the demographic and food available locally. Common activities that you will get involved with include preparing meals, delivering or serving meals, weighing children on the programmes and helping to write and deliver community awareness session. You will find the experience extremely enlightening as you learn about the cultural importance placed on certain foods, availability and access to certain products and the most common challenge of all, incorporating vegetables into everyday diets!
Millions of people around the world struggle to maintain a balanced diet, leading to malnutrition, and many rely on starchy foods which traditionally have been the cheapest and most accessible produce. It is well known that poor nutrition access for children leads to problems with their growth and ability to concentrate at school, but families are often unaware of this. By volunteering on a nutrition project with Kaya you will work in the heart of communities helping local teams to improve diets.
Volunteer placements that you can join with a focus on nutrition include a project to improve nutritional standards in the Philippines, efforts to improve the nutrition of a rural community in Peru and educate communities in Bolivia.
