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

Bilikit TM

Did you know that severe neonatal jaundice is the most common condition requiring medical treatment in newborns? Left untreated, it can lead to permanent brain damage and even death. In Peru, the rate of severe neonatal jaundice is 20 times greater than higher-income countries. To address this public health problem, INMED Andes is implementing the BilikitTM, a revolutionary trio of technologies to equip healthcare providers and community health workers to easily screen, diagnose and treat neonatal jaundice—even in the most remote regions. Watch this video to learn more about this game-changing project for neonatal healthcare.

So proud of INMED South Africa's Aquaponics Centre in Soweto--a community treasure that is improving food security, income opportunities and marketable skills for people living in poverty.
#INMEDAquaponics INMED Partnerships for Children Mondelēz International

A delegation from the North West provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Agricultural Research Council – as well as a group of small scale famers from the province visited INMED South Africa’s aquaponics facility in Orlando West, Soweto yesterday to learn more about how aquaponics systems work and how they can benefit the communities they serve. The systems, designed by INMED South Africa, require little water and deliver high quality, chemically-free, vegetables.
“We decided to visit this centre after we heard of its success. We really hope that our farmers and officials will use the knowledge gained from this visit and start implementing change in their communities,” said Dr Mary-Jane Thaela, director of the Agricultural Research Council.

Today is #WorldWaterDay! We’re celebrating by expanding #INMEDAquaponics in drought regions around the world. Aquaponics consumes up to 90% less water than traditional farming and protects the watershed by using no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. It’s environmentally friendly and scalable to urban and rural environments. We’re also using aquaponics to empower women, individuals with disabilities, subsistence farmers and children in distressed communities.

We are often reminded that climate change is not a phenomenon to be taken lightly. However, too often we only come to grips with this important issue when an event has severely wounded an island-neighbor for the fear that our island may be the next to suffer similar consequences. And there is no

In partnership with the Government of Jamaica’s Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, (MEGJC), INMED Caribbean is implementing #aquaponics systems in 5 communities of Northern Clarendon Parish. The region has been particularly hard-hit by severe climate events, including floods, landslides, drought and wildfires.

INMED’s aquaponics systems will help the communities strengthen their food security, provide income-generation opportunities and increase their climate-change resilience. The project is funded by the Climate Investment Fund via the Inter-American Development Bank and facilitated by MEGJC’s Project Executing Unit.

Our team at INMED Parcerias para Crianças knows that gardening is a family affair. In partnership with the Monsanto Fund, our #CrescerSaudáível (Growing Healthy) program in Petrolina, Brazil, is teaching preschoolers and their parents the importance of growing and eating fresh produce, making healthy lifestyle choices and staying fit.

The food grown in our 117 preschool gardens is incorporated into the children’s meals and given away to families in need. Learn more about this beautiful program at https://paracriancas.org.br/programas-para-criancas/crescer-saudavel/

Here's an interesting little fun fact from our team at INMED Parcerias para Crianças: Did you know that coconut contains vitamins and minerals that strengthen the immune system? It's a rich source of antioxidants and fiber, helps intestinal function, strengthens the teeth, and is known as an excellent "serum" for hydration. So go nuts for coconut!

Além de saboroso e refrescante, o coco possui quantidade de vitaminas e minerais que fortalecem o sistema imunológico e traz muitos benefícios importantes para nossa saúde.
Rico em gorduras saturadas, fonte de fibras, ajuda no funcionamento intestinal, tem ação antibacteriana, fortalece os dentes, é conhecido como um "soro" excelente para hidratação, e por ai vai… Que bom que temos essa fruta em abundancia no Brasil e este alimento está presente em diversas receitas.

Why are our #PellaFoodGarden farmers so excited? They just learned that Biotherm, through its subsidiary company Limarco 77 (RF) Proprietary Limited, has donated funding for a small-scale agro-processing room for their #INMEDAquaponics and adaptive agriculture enterprise. The cold storage unit will help the female entrepreneurs further expand their offerings, such as their popular bottled pickled fish. Thank you, BioTherm!

Our team at INMED South Africa led a VIP tour of three project sites in Free State for the leadership of USAID Southern Africa, which is partnering with us on aquaponics projects for three farming cooperatives run by individuals with disabilities. Our team also is working closely with Disabled People South Africa(DPSA) to help member cooperatives bolster their capacity, improve their business skills, increase their incomes, adapt to climate-change realities and foster inclusion via aquaponics. The farmers at all three sites were eager to show off their new skills and harvests.

INMED South Africa’s #aquaponics expert, KG Manyaga, was among the international thought leaders at the World Wildlife Fund's recent forum on the causes of environmental, health and social conflict in sub-Saharan Africa’s protein production systems. Funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, the World Wildlife Fund is working with the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis - NCEAS to conduct research on the impacts of protein systems.

Aquaponics was a key part of the discussion on sustainable food production, particularly as #climatechange stresses water resources in much of the world. INMED was invited to contribute to the discussion for our successful approach to improving #foodsecurity, #economicdevelopment, #environmentalprotection and climate-change resilience via aquaponics in disadvantaged communities.

The discussion outcomes will help inform strategic planning for future research and collaboration.

Check out the handiwork of new #aquaponics farmer Angella Ramdon-Salmon. She is one of 24 women who are participating in INMED Partnerships for Childrens Increasing Access to Climate-Smart Agriculture (IACA) in Jamaica.

Angella is using aquaponics to expand her organic herb and spice business. The herbs harvested from this system will be marketed to upscale buyers, along with other natural products derived from her crops. The products will be commercially available from Angella's website at https:// dewcoirgreenlimited.com (website is currently under construction).
