THE STORY:

Hey all! I am so blessed to be this year's International Projects Director and Co-President of UCLA's Nourish International, and it has been such a great experience to develop a project plan with our partners in Guatemala. Our goal for this year is 3-fold:

  • Empower women
  • Raise the standard of living in rural low-income villages
  • Combat malnutrition in young children

We will be working with Byoearth, a Guatemalan local nonprofit, to build plant nurseries and shops that will be run by women. We will be giving them the tools they need to get started and hosting business/accounting/management classes for the women, so that when we leave after the summer they have the skills and autonomy to  stay profitable. 

Additionally, we will build gardens in the homes of families and communities with children between the ages of 2 and 5. This is a crucial age in both physical and mental development, and it is essential that children have the plant vitamins they need to promote their growth. We will also offer cooking classes so families learn how to make tasty meals with the vegetables and fruits we plant that are less familiar to them.

For more details, look at the information at https://www.crowdrise.com/UCLA-UCSC-15/fundraiser/universityofcaliforn5

I am so passionate about all three of these causes, and I cannot wait to see the impact that Nourish can have with your help!
