For this project we are going to run, walk and cycle or way to Burundi with the help of donations.
For every €1 raised we, here at UNICEF Leiden, will be running, walking or cycling 1km.
That means that if we reach our goal of €500 we will have travelled 500 kilometres!
For our first big project we are going to run, walk and cycle or way to Burundi and we want you involved! There are 3 ways to get involved:

For every €1 raised we, here at UNICEF Leiden, will be running, walking or cycling 1km. That means that if we reach our goal of €500 we will have travelled 500 kilometres!
Burundi is a very fertile African country. However, 56% of children under the age of five are chronically malnourished due to severe under-feeding of good nutrients. The consequences of this are serious and often irreversible. But how is this happening? Even though most of the Burundian population lives in the countryside where they are self-sufficient and cultivate areas of land on which almost anything can grow, the daily meal of Burundian families often consists only of beans. Many mothers have never learned about the importance of vitamins and minerals for their own health and that of their children. To combat malnutrition, UNICEF works alongside exemplary mothers within the community. This involves increasing Mamans Lumières' knowledge of nutrition, providing them with seeds for setting up nutrient-rich vegetable gardens and teaching them skills to share the acquired knowledge with other mothers. Mamans Lumières also learn to teach other mothers to prepare delicious and healthy meals through cooking classes with local products.
