      Going There.         

Linking arms with you to make a difference. 

Due to lack of awareness and support, most children and adolescents often absorb generational, societal and communal health habits and perceptions.  These health habits not only include food choices, but also cultural unconscious biases,  discriminatory attitudes and social pressures on body image.  This results  in the prevailing stereotypes to persist, and the epidemic to continue. According to the World Health Organization, half of all social health disorders in adulthood start by age 14, but most cases are undetected and untreated.


This statistic makes evident the pressing need for children to receive health awareness and support in their environments with adequate cultural and societal considerations. 

For the youth, by the youth.  Building a global community.
