We apologize for the lack of updates over the past year, but we have some exciting news! In the past year, we have expanded our Global Call to Youth (a tree planting initiative) and Solar Energy Program to several new rural schools. We have also developed a nutritional intervention program to tackle protein calorie malnutrition amongst rural children. We have proposed a simple, low cost regimen of locally available and environmentally sustainable options for nutritional intervention in conjunction with nutritional education. We have also collaborated with a neighboring banana plantation to supply bananas on a weekly basis to the participating rural hostels. In a few weeks, the Project Jatropha team will head to India to expand the Solar Energy Program and Medical Missions to new locations.
We have also spent the past few months revamping our website, so please go check it out!
