BENEFITING: Save the Children

THE STORY:

Guatemala has highest rate of chronic malnutrition in children under five in all of Latin America. These rates are alarming considering that chronic malnutrition is highest among indigenous populations, as is linked to stunted physical and mental development, contributes to poor educational outcomes, and limits income generation potential due to illness and decreased intellectual capacity. Adolescent females marry as young as 12 years of age and have an average of seven children. All of these factors serve to reinforce the vicious cycle of poverty unless investments are made in children at a very early age. Save the Children is dedicated to ensuring children thrive in food secure and economically viable households.
