The focus of this project was to educate mothers on providing proper care and nutrition for their children. This included culinary classes twice a week, a water treatment product being distributed to children who have scabies, and receiving proper treatment and medication. During the project, there were 4 screening sessions using the brachial perimeter. Two were in Lescave and two were in Duchity. During each session, mothers are asked what they want to feed their child in the following session. The recipe will be discussed and the nutritional value of each ingredient will be explained. Prior to the following session, two women will purchase the necessary ingredients for the meal. While one group will do the cooking together, the other group will clean up afterwards. Before eating the meal prepared, a song is always sung almost like a prayer. With the help of another sponsor, following up on the project would be made possible. This would allow for the children taking part to have 15 consecutive days of a balanced diet, successfully curing malnutrition.
