Why foundations should invest in nutrition
Improving nutrition presents one of the most effective ways to give children around the world a better start in life, and constitutes an investment in the future of whole generations. Reducing undernutrition and stunting will give millions more children the importunity to thrive and flourish at school and beyond, and will help fuel the growth and development of entire communities and countries.
Co-investment by foundations and philanthropies is critical to achieving these goals. Foundations are not only able to provide important funding but also help to ensure that programmes focus on long-term change, risks and learnings are shared and resources are increasingly tailored to changing needs.
