LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jun 20, 2022–

The Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF), a global nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and families around the world, announced today a new two-year partnership with The Power of Nutrition and the World Bank. The partnership will include a grant of $300,000 and will initially focus on the Stunting Reduction Program in Rwanda. These efforts are in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 2 to achieve zero hunger globally.

“The effects of poor nutrition in children are alarming and we hope to elevate the transformative work done by The Power of Nutrition and the World Bank to ensure children and families receive a head start and a healthier quality of life,” said Alan Hoffman, President of the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation.

Stunting affects 149 million children around the world and 33% of children under the age of five in Rwanda, limiting their physical and cognitive development. This preventable and reversible form of malnutrition also impacts Rwanda’s local economic growth, and the partnership will increase awareness of, and access to, quality nutrition, positively impacting more than one million women and children.
