Inspired by the other student teams, wanting to give ourselves a challenge to kick off the year, and our eagerness to raise some money and help tackle malnourishment in Burundi, pushed us to create this campaign. However, in order for it to be successful, we need YOUR help! *HOW YOU CAN HELP* How does it work exactly? Very simple! Donate some money and for each €1 donated, a member of our team will run, walk, swim, or cycle 1km. *WHERE THE MONEY IS GOING: MAMAN LUMIERE PROJECT* Curious about the Maman Lumière project? Read below for more information: Burundi is a fertile African country. However, 56% of children under the age of five are chronically malnourished due to severe under-feeding of good nutrients. The consequences of this are serious and often irreversible. But how is this possible? This is because even though most of the Burundian population lives in the countryside where they are self-sufficient and cultivate areas of land on which almost anything can grow, the daily meal of Burundian families often consists only of beans. Many mothers have never learned about the importance of vitamins and minerals for their own health and that of their children. To combat malnutrition, UNICEF works alongside exemplary mothers within the community. This involves increasing Maman Lumières' knowledge of nutrition, providing them with seeds for setting up nutrient-rich vegetable gardens, and teaching them skills to share the acquired knowledge with other mothers. Maman Lumières also learn to teach other mothers to prepare delicious and healthy meals through cooking classes with local products. What can your donation do? 1 share: Helps spread awareness about UNICEF, Burundi and our projects with your friends and family. €2.50: Nutrient-rich sprinkles for one child. €15: Organization of 1 cooking class. €20: Organization of 2 malnutrition screening sessions. €50: Full training for one Maman Lumière. *MORE INFORMATION* You can find more information about the project, our work, and/or our upcoming events on our social media pages: Instagram: instagram.com/unicefstudententeamutrecht Facebook: facebook.com/UnicefStudentenTeamUtrecht If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach us via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you and let's do this!
