Did you know that:
*Every day, over 40% of Bolivian families struggle to support their children’s most basic food needs?
*Two-thirds of the Bolivian population is below the poverty line?
* The majority of the country’s children does not receive the minimum daily caloric intake and are suffering from nutritional deficiencies?
*The widespread use of primitive cook stoves resulting in harmful smoke exposure has led to a number of other health issues for families in the community?
I didn't either–until Truvia® recently contacted me about their "Sharing a Sweet Future" initiative. I occasionally use Truvia as part of the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan, and a long, long time ago God gave me a heart for Latin Americans (it was my second major in college). So, I was delighted they asked me to share what they are doing in Bolivia with you!
Knowing of the hardships faced by Bolivian families, the Truvia® brand has committed to working with the World Food Program USA to help provide Bolivian kids and families with a sweeter future.
Thanks to the Truvia® brand’s “Sharing a Sweet Future” charitable initiative, over 34,705 Bolivian school children have already received more nutritionally-balanced school meals, and Bolivian locals have received 68 fuel efficient stoves, allowing another 3,574 students to eat cooked meals in a safer environment.
The Truvia® team created a video series showcasing the everyday hardships experienced by Bolivian family members. $1 dollar feeds 4 kids. Now, they are asking consumers to view and share these videos on Facebook or Twitter using #SweetFuture to support the initiative.
