With the purchase of an ikigay, you are helping to feed
the future of venezuela.
Venezuela is going through the greatest crisis in its history, and we wanted to help in some way. We are sure that giving is receiving, and we want our products to be the conduit for many to do so as well.
We decided to partner with the Nutriendo El Futuro Organization, a non-profit foundation in Venezuela that is in charge of helping many low-income children have the childhood they deserve.
Nurturing the Future is a project created by young Venezuelans who, given the country's socioeconomic situation, contribute daily to spaces where children can eat, learn and play in a safe environment. The mothers of the area receive workshops on empowerment and labor independence, while their children grow and feed.
Since opening in 2018, they have achieved many improvements:
They reduced malnutrition in the area from 50% to 5%
They provided more than 450 academic hours
They established a weekly health control
They taught workshops that gave mothers decent jobs
They recovered a space that was not used for more than 10 years
and many more works that together with you we can achieve.
For every Ikigay mat you buy, you are ensuring a child's nutrition and growth for a week.
