Ten years ago, Kindness In A Box began the "Green Health Learning Project" to combat the prevalence of stunting, malnutrition and anemia in the District of Maras Peru. Greenhouses were built at the Kacllaraccary, Mullacas, Misminey, Chequerec and Mahuya Pampa Schools where Kindness In A Box has worked for 14 years. Educational materials and nutritional trainings provided by the Urubamba Agriculture Engineers were provided to the students, parents, teachers and principals at each of these schools. Thanks to a grant from The International Foundation, Kindness In A Box has been able to make a difference in the health of these Quechua children and their families in the District of Maras, Peru.
The Kindness In A Box Greenhouse built at the Mahuay Pampa School is the largest greenhouse built by Kindness In A Box through the "Green Health Learning Project". The greenhouse provides organic vegetables for the 120 students and their families at the school.
Hats are distributed to the children of the Mullacas Pre-School by Lynda Burgman, Founder & Executive Director to prevent sunburn which is common at this altitude. Kindness In A Box has helped the children and families of this pre-school since 2006 by providing school supplies, lunches, a school greenhouse and a renovated building for the school.
