Recycle for Burundi

With climate change being one of the most pressing crises faced today, the UNICEF Student Team Utrecht have decided to launch a campaign called #RecycleForBurundi♻️ *What we will do* As a team, we will collect plastic bottles and glasses from around the city and recycling them at the local supermarkets, in which we will get money in return. These funds will be donated to our current project, Maman Lumière, in Burundi. *How you can help* Simple! We would like to invite you to join us in this campaign by donating the money you have collected from recycling your plastic and glass bottles at the supermarket (i.e. your 'statiegeld'). No donation is too small and will go a long way. *The Maman Lumière project* Burundi is a very fertile African country. However, at the same time, 56% of children under the age of five are chronically malnourished because they structurally lack proper nutrients in their diet. The consequences of this are severe and (often) irreversible. How can this happen? Most of the Burundian population live in the countryside where they are self-sufficient. However, many mothers have never learned about the importance of vitamins and minerals for their health and that of their children. To combat malnutrition, UNICEF is deploying mothers of well-fed children who live under the same circumstances as mothers of malnourished children, to teach other mothers on the importance of nutrition. *What can your donation do?* € 2,50: Nutrient-rich sprinkles for one child € 15, -: organisation of 1 cooking class. € 20, -: organisation of 2 malnutrition screening sessions. € 50, -: training of one Maman Lumière.
