Complements the Nutrition for Zero Hunger (NFZH) campaign, a global initiative started by Herbalife Nutrition
The Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF), a global nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and families around the world, has announced a new two-year partnership with The Power of Nutrition and the World Bank. The partnership will include a grant of $300,000 and will initially focus on the Stunting Reduction Program in Rwanda. These efforts are in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 2 to achieve zero hunger globally.
Stunting affects 149 million children around the world and 33% of children under the age of five in Rwanda, limiting their physical and cognitive development. This preventable and reversible form of malnutrition also impacts Rwanda’s local economic growth, and the partnership will increase awareness of, and access to, quality nutrition, positively impacting more than one million women and children.
Funding for this programme will support the provision of essential nutrition and health services to children and mothers and support the delivery of nutrition conditional cash transfers to enhance access to adequate and diverse diets and health services.
