The purpose of this project is to reduce hunger and malnutrition among children and to increase school enrolment rates in Haiti, especially among girls. The project stimulates the local economy in a sustainable manner by purchasing local products from women farmers and entrepreneurs, which would give them more opportunities to contribute to their own economic success and that of their communities. The project’s activities include: (1) offering nutritious meals every day to 180,000 school age children, thus encouraging school attendance and academic success of the recipient children; and (2) offering economic opportunities to women in rural areas by making local purchases.
