1000 DAYS

1000 DAYS

By improving nutrition in the 1,000 days between pregnancy and a child’s second birthday, we can help families, communities and countries break the cycle of poverty and hunger. The best thing to do. The right thing to do. The perfect time to do it. 

We want you to campaign and spread the word about this new way of fighting hunger. If we get the support of governments around the world, we can make huge changes globally.
