A country is doomed to failure if it is unable to take good care of its children.
It is a fact. In Guatemala, only 1% of children aged under 3 years old have access to early stimulation services, and only half of them have access to preschool education. Guatemala ranks 1st country in Latin América in child malnutrition. And one in two children suffers from chronic malnutrition in our country. 57% of our rural population lives in extreme poverty. And despite having a law that protects Guatemalan women to lead healthy motherhood, 4 women die daily due to causes related to pregnancy, childbirth or postpartum difficulties.
Idea Global is a group of Guatemalan women that since 2014 have been working together within 15 communities.
We work with more than 220 children and 187 mothers with the mission of developing healthy children with their mothers through a proven system focused on early stimulation, emotional well-being, and nutrition. With hard work and serious commitment, we have worked to eradicate anemia and raise the growth curve of our children. Cognitive and emotional development has been improved in 96% of our communities. Thus achieving a small step towards the optimal growth and development of Guatemalan children. How to start?
