Here’s a great piece from The Guardian about how we can improve nutrition in adolescent girls around the world: http://goo.gl/jHC9LT One great idea is to encourage girls to play sports because there is evidence that doing so can empower girls, improve their self-esteem and challenge gender steroetypes. When girls know their worth and value, they take better care of themselves and rise to new heights. Early intervention, keeping girls in school and providing diverse diets are some of the other call to actions laid out in this piece. 

Remember this? A #tbt to our Clean Water Project at the Fiwagoh Mission Home in Kenya that brought clean water access to the 200 children living there. Getting the kids clean water improved their overall health and reduced the risk of waterborne illnesses. It also saved the home $2,400 each year that was spent purchasing water from the city. This is change, not charity!
