Partnership: Approximately 65 million children under 5 years of age in Sub-Saharan Africa suffer from Vitamin A deficiency which can limit growth, weaken immunity, and lead to blindness. Esther's Aid and the CIP know that the bio-fortified, rich in vitamin A, Orange Fleshed Sweet Potato is a solution to this endemic problem. The students and graduates of Esther's Aid Culinary Arts Program will become the OFSP Ambassadors of the future. As Chefs, they will learn how to produce the life saving OFSP products and will play a vital role in influencing the business of food processing and manufacturing, which makes this new partnership ideal. They will be empowered and given the tools to educate about the consumption of bio-fortified sweet potatoes and their health benefits. The graduates of Esther's Aid Culinary Arts Program will spread the word as they go on to work in hotels, restaurants, bakeries, and communities throughout Rwanda, Africa and the World.
