World Atlas published an article on March 10, 2016 called “Most Malnourished Countries in the World” indicating Haiti as having the lowest per capita food availability in daily calories in the world (1976 calories per day).
The article further states that 1 in 3 children have stunted growth. THEA has been addressing this concern since 2011 when our Gardening and Nutrition Programs began. To increase protein consumption one family at a time, THEA’s Gardening and Nutrition teachers proposed a self-sustainable Chicken/Egg production Training Program. The process of clearing the land and building the chicken coop began March 2016.
