Enfants du Monde

Program support and equipment in Burkina Faso
For a program to fight malnutrition in the bush schools of Yatenga Province in Burkina Faso and for equipment.  The program began in 2002 with an initiative to distribute a nutritional supplement, Alfalfa Leaf Extract (ALE), in the most remote and destitute villages and schools.

The Committee of the Côte d’Azur (EDMCA) signed an agreement with the Health Ministry in Burkina Faso for local trained employees to distribute the nutritional powder and monitor the children’s development.  As little as 10g per day added to children’s food yielded major improvements in growth and health. The association is now seeking to extend the powder distribution program to additional schools in Yatenga province.

Enfants du Monde is a humanitarian association created in 1980 to support destitute children all over the world, particularly in western Africa. The Committee of the Côte d’Azur, created in 1995, dedicates itself to fighting malnutrition in Burkina Faso.
