Emma's Baby SOUP (EBS)
Learning is difficult if a child is malnourished and suffering from illness. Our EBS program relies on a holistic health approach facilitated through medical attention at the SOUP Primary School, the provision of nutrient-rich food, community workshops, parent counseling, and home visits throughout Nabikabala Village. Through our continuous engagement with 50 community families each year, EBS combats some of the areas greatest health risks. Through these services, we open up opportunities for our community’s children by proactively recognizing and addressing community health needs.
