Nutrition

Children suffering from malnutrition are more vulnerable to diarrhea related diseases. If we want to increase our impact, prevention of malnutrition and stunting is of vital importance.

A large proportion of children in South Asia suffer from malnutrition – in Bangladesh even half of all children are malnourished. Children who suffer from malnutrition are more vulnerable to diarrhea related diseases. At the same time, recurrent diarrhea and intestinal infections can cause long-lasting damage to the development of children in the form of stunting. With our programs on stunting we strive for stunting-free communities. Our approach? We train community representatives on growth monitoring, child nutrition, worm control and breaking fecal consumption.
