ECF employs an entrepreneurial approach to saving children’s lives that’s different from traditional charity. Our model creates system-wide improvements to ensure lasting results. Instead of importing RUTF (therapeutic peanut butter) from abroad, ECF establishes local RUTF production and effective distribution systems in the country where it is needed. This model not only saves lives, but also empowers families and creates economic growth for sustainable success.
Support farmers by locally sourcing raw materials needed to produce RUTF
Establish a sustainable local factory to produce RUTF, employing local labor and improving the local economy
Work with local partners to design and implement a streamlined national distribution system to reach remote community clinics
Community Based Health
Ensure community clinics have trained staff to diagnose severely malnourished children and educate mothers on how to nurse their child back to health
