HELWEI @CHEF Camp organized by CHAKIKI Lagos
HELWEI @CHEF Camp organized by CHAKIKI Lagos for kids aged 12-16, sharing on the need to make healthy food choices and eat nutrient dense foods such as bio-fortified foods, illustrated with OFSP.
Healthy Living & Women Empowerment Initiative (HELWEI) is a national, non-governmental, non-profit organization that is committed to the improvement of children and women’s livelihood; promotion of general health and wellbeing through nutrition and positive lifestyle.
This we seek to do through the provision of opportunities for knowledge sharing, skill acquisition, health advice, and information.
As an organization, we have observed a vacuum on personal hygiene in the course of our interactions with school-age children and adults in different communities. This hinged on lack of awareness and active participation on personal hygiene and nutrition for a sustainable healthy life.
Research has shown that most killer diseases are induced by diet. These diseases include hypertension, obesity and cancer among others. Prevention is attainable with adoption of good food choices and positive lifestyles.
The choice of children and young people is hinged on our conviction that orientation on healthy food choices and values is ideal.
