A Voice for Forgotten Children

Nutrition

We're not content to simply provide imported foods to malnourished and vulnerable children, instead Point Hope takes a holistic approach to nutrition. We raise organic food, and assess children who appear to be malnourished. Once assessed, a program is put in place, progress is monitored, and the attending parent or adult is educated on nutrition, sanitary cooking practices and food security. 

Our nutrition program has gained the respect of nutrition experts internationally. Adam Sandow and the team has been invited to present their research and results at two different international nutrition conferences.We welcome students and professors from around the globe who want to help improve our Nutrition program.  We hope to use the Point Hope Nutrition model to work in a multitude of refugee camps not only in West Africa, but through out the world. 

 

Healthy kids make good students!

Point Hope has built our own grain mill so we can produce our own "Tom Brown", a hearty, nutrient and protein packed cereal that is served hot each day. The malnourished children thrive when they eat Tom Brown for breakfast and their noon time meal always includes stew made with fresh vegetables.
