We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to all those who came out to support Every Child Fed at Spring to Life! We had a great send off for our VP, Kim Hedge, as she prepares to move to Zambia in April to serve as Country Director. We also raised awareness about malnutrition in sub-Saharan Africa, while celebrating National Peanut Month and National Women’s History Month.

All of the proceeds from this event will go toward building a new facility in Zambia to produce life-saving Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF).

A special thank you goes to our gracious host Peter and Keith of  Southern Hospitality, who generously donated 12% of the evening’s earnings to Every Child Fed.

International Women’s Day 2014 and National Peanut Month: Celebrating Women Peanut Farmers

Every Child Fed (ECF) has a lot to celebrate this month.  March is National Peanut Month and National Women’s History Month.  March 8th is International Women’s Day. This year, the theme for Women’s Day is “Inspiring Change,” calling on people around the world to advocate for women’s rights. The United Nations is also marking the 20th anniversary of the Cairo agreement, whereby leaders from around the world agreed to prioritize women’s empowerment and equality. While much progress has been made in the past 20 years, women are still marginalized in many parts of the world.Read more

Local Production: In Style

Local production is not just a passing trend; it is an empowering and sustainable long-term strategy.  At Every ChildFed (ECF), we believe that local is best. An important goal in development is to create sustainable change by using local resources, rather than depending on outside aid.  ECF relies on local labor to produce life saving Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) using primarily locally sourced raw materials, including peanuts, oil and sugar.Read more

World Day of Social Justice

February 20, 2014 marks the eighth annual World Day of Social Justice.

Mother-and-child

The United Nations celebrates World Day of Social Justice by proclaiming:

Social justice is an underlying principle for peaceful and prosperous coexistence within and among nations. We uphold the principles of social justice when we promote gender equality or   the rights of indigenous peoples and migrants. We advance social justice when we remove barriers that people face because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability. 

Observance of World Day of Social Justice should support efforts of the international community in poverty eradication, the promotion of full employment and decent work, gender equity and access to social well-being and justice for all.Read more
