Every minute 5 children under the age of 5 die from malnutrition . . . Every Child Matters . . . Local Plants Suit Local Conditions
The Mustard Seed Institute is excited to be working in partnership with Food Plant Solutions, to improve the health and well being of the local community through education and advocacy on agricultural innovations. They will focus on gaining knowledge about what crops to grow in order to lower malnutrition levels amongst the local children. It is currently estimated that 40% of children in rural areas of Rwanda are malnourished; this detrimentally impacts their physical and mental development in the long-term.
