Banasa ends up 2019 cycle of the “One Banana a Day Change Your Life” project.[:]

During  2019, Banasa benefited 1,824 children through the nutrition program one banana a day changes your life, which consists of incorporating one banana a day as a nutritional supplement to the school meal.

Multiple local and governmental alliances have been established to carry out preventive health activities such as weight and height measurement.

Among its objectives, the program seeks to impact objective 2 of the SDGs (zero hunger), as well as to promote the active participation of social actors: business, community, and government.

The program benefited schools located in the Retalhuleu, Quetzaltenango and San Marcos region.

Schools were recognized for the implementation of the program, as well as the institutions that contributed to preventive health activities throughout the school year.[:]
