And the opportunity to celebrate these 14 men and one women who have put in so much time and hard work into their training. They also started a program in a local village to teach the mamas how to make a nutritionally rich and balanced cereal so that their children can grow healthy and fat. This was after discovering the government stopped supplying the cereal, this group learned how to make it, provided and taught it to 30+ participants and is handing the ministry over to a local ONG to continue the work.
