Overview

Volunteering Solutions offers a special Nutrition and Public Health volunteering opportunities in the Philippines that aims to rectify and improve the malnourished condition of infants, especially, those born in low-income communities. This project is more on the lines of public awareness and includes a feeding program for malnourished children.

Under this project, VolSol volunteers have to organize seminars and workshops for the local and the rural communities and enlighten them about the benefits of a balanced diet and maintaining nutritional plans. Through these information-rich workshops, volunteers have to convince the parents to create a food habit that is rich in vital nutrients and nourishing for the kids. These learnings have to be imparted keeping in view that the locals do not compromise on their personal savings. The goals of the project are two-fold.

  • The first is to provide a stable supplementary feeding program for malnourished infants for pre-school children aged 3 to 6 years old. 
  • The second is to disseminate information to parents about the importance of healthy nutrition through a series of workshops and seminars.

Through this process, parents get to witness the improvement that good nutrition has on the health of their children whilst at the same time learning how to best utilize their available resources to provide a stable diet regardless of their personal income.
