If children are provided sufficient food and nutrition and protected from infectious disease, they can exercise their full intellectual capability through education. There are 12 proven essential services (recommended by the UN), that when integrated, provide sufficient nutrition, prevent infectious disease, and ensure adequate education.
Governments are well aware of what is needed so every child can realize the fullness of their human potential. Yet, there are 400 million hungry children and millions more who suffer from inadequate nutrition and infectious disease.
Earthboxes offer a simple solution to help alleviate hunger, improve food security and address micronutrient deficiencies as well as providing an educational tool for children to learn practical agricultural lessons. Learning becomes real and relevant for the children. Earthboxes promote active, applied learning, and are an effective means for transferring agricultural technology and skills while the children have fun growing their own fruits and vegetables.
By making a tax deductible donation to the Tanzania Earthbox Fund you will help the children in a number of ways realize the fullness of their potential.
