INMED Partnerships for Children

INMED Partnerships for Children Since 1986, we have built alliances with public- and private-sector partners in more than 100 countries to rescue children from the immediate and irreversible harm and encourage community collaboration to sustain positive change.
Transforming Children's Lives, Cultivating Opportunity For too many children around the world, their hope for the future is not matched by opportunity. Facing poverty, poor health, malnutrition and lack of education, living in broken families and violent communities, a generation of children is at risk. Since 1986, INMED Partnerships for Children has built alliances with public- and private-sector partners in more than 100 countries to rescue children from the immediate and irreversible harm of disease, hunger, abuse, neglect or violence, and to prepare them to shape a brighter future for themselves and the next generation. Through a broad range of health, social, education, violence prevention and community development programs, INMED is helping to create opportunities that inspire hope, build self-reliance and encourage community collaboration to sustain positive change. Together with our partners, we are transforming the future for hundreds of thousands of children and their family and community members in Latin America and the Caribbean, southern Africa, and the U.S. by: * Securing children’s health, development and safety * Developing skills, knowledge and opportunities for children and youth * Building family and community capacity to support and sustain positive change

8 Years of Aquaponics at Pudumo Primary

We're celebrating 8 years of #aquaponics at Pudumo Primary School n Orange Farm, Gauteng , SouthAfrica. It was the first cement system built in South Africa. Our team at INMED South Africa recently worked with the students to prepare the grow beds for winter crops and added fingerlings to the fish tanks. In two months, the vegetables will be harvested for the school’s meals.

Today is the International Day of Families. Did you know that in Sub-Saharan Africa, 42% of the population is living at less than $1.90 per day? When families live in extreme poverty, their children have little understanding of their own potential. They are just trying to survive. Our programs help parents and children build essential skills for self-reliance as well as opportunities to overcome poverty and achieve big dreams.

Our team at Para Criancas swears by this recipe. Let us know what you think!

O bife de fígado é sempre indicado na alimentação infantil por ser muito rico em ferro, vitaminas A e B, proteínas de qualidade e ótima fonte de energia que nossas crianças tanto precisam.

Você sabe como preparar um bife irresistível?

A dica é retirar a pele do fígado, deixar de molho por 30 minutos no leite e depois cozinhar em cima de uma camada de cebola!

Do you think ALL babies deserve a healthy start in life? If so, give a thumbs up to our team at INMED Andes--hard at work training health personnel from Hospital Regional Docente Materno Infantil El Carmen - Oficial, @CetrodeSaludChilca and @CentrodeSaludLibertad in Junín, Peru how to use the Bilikit(TM) to reduce newborn jaundice. Junín has the highest rate of jaundice-linked kernicterus in the country—leading to permanent brain damage, cerebral palsy, deafness and other debilitating disorders. With the Bilikit(TM), we can take screening, diagnosis and treatment to the most remote regions of the world.

Did you know that Sunday is the #InternationalDayoftheMidwife? For more than 30 years, INMED has empowered women to become volunteer health agents in their communities. Many have gone on to become midwives as a result. This is one of the many pathways INMED creates to help children get a healthy start in life and their families to achieve wellbeing and self-reliance.

Hoje foi o dia de treinamento das Merendeiras.
Essa é uma parte muito importante do Programa Crescer Saudável, uma vez que nossas crianças passam muitas horas nas escolas, onde fazem suas principais refeições.

Essa turma aprendeu na prática a porcionarem corretamente as refeições servidas para cada faixa etária.
Também reforçamos sobre:
* Higiene pessoal, dos alimentos e equipamentos
* Conceitos de educação nutricional e saúde
* Elaboração de pratos saudáveis e criativos

Parabéns a todas participantes e envolvidas! @ Senai Petrolina

It's official! Our Health in Action bear in South Africa has a name! And he's got some good moves!
Mondelēz International #MondelezInternationalFoundation

INMED South Africa’s Health in Action (HIA) mascot was officially christened Jabulani today at the Lukholweni Primary School in Orlando, Soweto. The name was among several submitted as part of a competition among all the schools participating in INMED’s Health in Action programme, sponsored by the Mondelēz International Foundation (MIF). Jabulani – with his impressive six-pack abs – leads a healthy lifestyle by being active in all sports, including dance. Watch the pupils perform their special song for Jabulani - a Zulu word which means "rejoice" or "be happy" and fully embraces being proudly South African!

Check out this plump catfish, just harvested from our #INMEDAquaponics system at Universität der Nelson-Mandela-Metropole in Port Elizabeth, South Africa - portelizabethbuzz.com. One down, 499 to go! It's how we're feeding hungry children and creating income-generation opportunities in distressed communities.
Mondelēz International #MondelezInternationalFoundation

The INMED South Africa’s aquaponics team in Port Elizabeth is getting ready to harvest a whopping 1 500 catfish of between 1.2 and 1.6 kg. These whoppers can be sold by the community-driven adaptive agriculture project and/or used to feed the community. Catfish are most commonly used in the aquaponics system, and once they grow to over a kilogram in weight, they can be eaten. Because the water in the system is fresh (no mud), the catfish are delicious and very nutritious. Once the bigger fish are harvested, the system welcomes new fingerlings to provide the nutrients needed for the vegetable seedlings to grow.

Our INMED Andes team just completed a two-week Bilikit training program for neonatologists, community health workers and clinicians in Junín, Peru. This revolutionary package of portable technologies will allow them to screen for, diagnose and treat neonatal jaundice in any location and will be a game-changer in reducing the debilitating effects of jaundice in low-resource regions.

Did you know that recess can help kids perform better in school? A Harvard study revealed that healthier students make better learners, and the more physical fitness tests children passed, the better they did on academic tests. The study concluded that children can benefit academically from physical activity during recess. INMED South Africa’s #HealthinAction program with the Mondelēz International Foundation is proof positive!
