Vetting Centers and Charities

What:

Project Healthy Children (PHC) strives to end malnutrition in two ways. The first strategy is large scale fortification called Enact Monitoring, which helps a country’s population develop into healthy and contributing members of the community. Enact Monitoring works with governmental partners to monitor the compliance of nationwide food fortification programs that reach millions of people. This is to ensure that correct vitamins and minerals are available in communities that need them most. The second strategy is small scale fortification called Sanku. Sanku is an innovative technological and business solution catered towards the gap of peri-urban and rural level communities that are not serviced by large scale fortification programs. 

Where:

PHC’s offices are in Cambridge, Massachusetts and Tanzania. The program has had success in many places including Kenya, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania.

Why: 

There are over 2 billion people who lack access to vital nutrients. Malnutrition is the leading cause of intellectual disability amongst children, maternal death during childbirth, and preventable blindness among adults. In fact, over 200,000 children suffer from mental impairment within the first 5 years of their lives, 1 billion die from malaria, and 375,000 become blind due to insufficient amounts of vitamin A.
