Centre launched to tackle ECD
Current global trends indicate that by 2015 one in four children under the age five will suffer from stunted growth, a clear sign of malnutrition which affects children’s physical and cognitive development and capacity to learn. JAM SA’s Nutritional Feeding programme seeks to provide a highly nutritious porridge to thousands of pre-school children each day, giving them the energy they need to play, learn and develop into happy and healthy members of their community.
