Health & Nutrition
Occasionally, we are able to provide supplemental nutrition bars. Our aim is to counteract, even in a minimum way, pervasive malnutrition in the inhabitants of the Baja Verapaz region.
The students that come to our library are guaranteed at least one daily nutritious drink. Each child is provided with a pound of nutritional powdered drink to take home. This enables each child to have breakfast and dinner.
Lunch is provided to students who are sponsored by our donors. Currently, we serve 10 to 12 lunches daily. These lunches benefit children who are a part of the educational programs we offer, and who have no possible way of obtaining access to a nutritional meal.
