WE ARE A ORGANIZATION

NON-GOVERNMENTAL(NGO)

Malnutrition damages the brain and produces mental weakness, which is the only mental weakness that can be created, prevented and reversed by man. The main wealth of a country is its human capital and if that human capital is damaged the country has no future.
Child malnutrition begins, in most cases, as a result of extreme poverty. The basis may include alcoholism, lack of commitment from parents, illiteracy, lack of job placement and/or lack of training, poor environmental sanitation or promiscuity. We can then consider malnutrition as the final result of underdevelopment, at which point the child suffers the greatest impact by relying on third parties for their care and growth.
Therefore, child malnutrition is not just a lack of food. It is a deeper social conflict, which must be taken into account when providing solutions. CONIN is an organization that carries out a comprehensive approach to the problem: it cares for the sick child but also for their family environment and setting.

Pilar Deza

FOUNDER, CONIN PERÚ

CONIN was founded by Pilar Deza, located in Pamplona Alta in Lima-Peru. Pilar brought the successful method of CONIN Chile and Argentina, devised by Dr. Abel Albino and Doctor Fernando Mönckeberg. They successfully broke the scourge of child malnutrition in their countries. As a result Chile and Argentina have the lowest rate of malnutrition in Latin America. This method was complemented in Peru through the Center for the Prevention of Child Malnutrition and Human Promotion.

Our Programs

This program is an opportunity to provide equal opportunities to our Peruvian children which allows them to display their genetic potential. Its objective is to improve child nutrition through a comprehensive approach to this social problem, that includes researching and assisting vulnerable populations, mainly in ages from zero to five years and pregnant women.
This program provides food assistance to the child and their family. It provides them with weekly non-perishable foods that contain the nutrients they need for healthy growth.

  • Campaigns to combat ANEMIA
  • Children are evaluated by performing hemoglobin tests for accurate information about anemia levels. From these a calendar is prepared that tends to them for three months with a daily NUTRI HERRO cookie package. We have had surprising results for the first month but it is necessary to continue for two more months in order that this result to be consolidated.

  • Nutrition Workshops - School for Parents
  • These are educational workshops aimed at mothers with issues of nutrition and hygiene habits, through the prevention of infectious diseases, teaching food care and nutritional cooking. All of this is done while respecting the culture of each individual and optimizing the available resources. Advice is provided for timely, adequate and balanced complementary infant feeding. Information and support is given in order to emphasize the importance of breastfeeding.

The program is aimed at teenage mothers in the community, and seeks to strengthen the mother and child bond. This is done through activities, moments with their children and conversation circles that allow the recognition of their motherhood, the importance of the early years in the formation of their children, how to teach them to live away from violence.
This activity is aimed at the elders of the community. The main objective is to make them feel content, heard and tended to. They are given a space to have a gathering to sing and dance, talk and have a bowl of soup together. The soup warms them up and gives them energy.
We help families who are living in Pamplona Alta, where they are exposed to inclement weather. Together professionals, collaborators, teachers and students rebuild their homes with sustainable materials.
Children are currently educated from the first years of preschool to fifth grade of primary school. Since its inception, Pamplona College has always been at the forefront of education with the great commitment to train and educate responsible citizens, strengthening their civic values ​​and society. The school growth occurs with awareness of the importance of teaching a second language, and maintaining the academic requirement by training people with values. By 2020 Pamplona will expand sixth grade of primary and secondary school so that students move forward with the necessary tools to succeed.
