Through our Thrive to Five program, Vitamin Angels distributes daily multivitamins to pregnant women, new mothers and children under five live in settings where undernutrition and malnutrition are known to be prevalent. Thrive to Five gives children under five the vital first step they need to excel physically and cognitively, rather than simply survive their key developmental years.
By providing at-risk children under five with essential nutrients, we support proper physical and mental development. Well-nourished children take better advantage of available educational opportunities. In addition, we provide multivitamins to pregnant women and new mothers increasing the health of both mother and child.
We achieve results by working with partners that have a local presence and an intimate understanding of the communities being served. Every project is localized to apply targeted solutions, while also employing accepted best practices for distributing essential nutrients.
In 2012, through Thrive to Five, Vitamin Angels distributed approximately 125 million doses of daily multivitamins to children and mothers in 33 countries, including the United States, on four continents.
