Sustainable Healthy Living
This program focuses on nutrition and life skills of new and expecting mothers. Many of these women in Intibucá lack education in the this area including: basic hygiene, reproductive anatomy, pregnancy, obstetric risks and dangers, labor, post-partum care, breastfeeding and nutrition. This project will also give seeds to individuals for home gardens of vegetables otherwise unavailable.

Hygiene and its effects on the transmittal of sickness and diseases
Pregnancy and the risks that can be avoided through preparation and nutrition
