The first issue the Bodhi Tree Educational Foundation addresses regarding nutrition is the absolute basic of making sure that the children have enough food to eat. We provide nutritious meals at school to support growing bodies and minds. We work with skilled Doctors and Nutritionists to develope nutritional educational program for families and communities. Helping teach the primary imporatance of proper nutrition at every stage of a childs and adults developement is an essential part of devloping healthy communities and breaking the cycle of poverty for human beings.
In the community, we participate in programs that are geared to increasing the local community’s ability to support itself and all its members with sufficient food. This includes education regarding improved agricultural techniques; assistance in procuring outside food sources as necessary to enable the community members to continue working towards the goal of self-sufficiency; and encourage community problem solving to address problems and needs that co-operation may bring the answer to.
