GC4C Visits Patacancha

Last month Chafika Eddine, a director at Global Change for Children (GC4C), visited the Patacancha Trout Farm and wrote about her experience:

“Since its creation in 2008, the Global Change for Children Foundation (GC4C) has funded over 20 projects in four different countries. It is always so gratifying for any of us involved with GC4C to be able to witness how our efforts are actually being transformed in concrete results towards enhancing the health, education, social and economic development of children.

I recently had the opportunity to visit a project in Peru supported by GC4C that is carried out by The Alma Children’s Foundation. I went to a school in the Patacancha community where GC4C helped build trout tanks that aim to reduce malnutrition among the primary school students by providing a protein rich lunch for approximately 134 students.

During my visit I had the delight of sharing some precious moments with the children of Patacancha and a delicious trout meal. The trout farm project also aspires to develop into a source of economy for the community and we hope it will become self-sustainable in a short period of time.

We are grateful to GC4C for their tremendous support.
