WASHINGTON (April 17, 2013) — CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty, stopped by the Towero site of Africare’s Mwanzo Bora Nutrition Program (MBNP) in Morogoro, Tanzania during its CARE Learning Tour, on which a group of high-level U.S. government officials, corporate partners and the media visited different projects in Africa tackling food and nutrition security. Members of the delegation learned that Mwanzo Bora, which means, “good start,” teaches families farming techniques and provides nutrition advice to support the government of Tanzania’s goal to reduce childhood stunting and maternal anemia by 20% over a five-year period.
