INMED’s Break Time Buddies are BACK!

INMED’s Break Time Buddies are BACK! After a much-needed summer break, our orange-shirted fitness facilitators were eagerly welcomed back to Health in Action schools in Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Implemented in partnership with the Mondelēz International Foundation, INMED’s Health in Action program is a school-based initiative to increase access to fresh produce via school gardens, nutrition and health education and training and physical activities during recess time. INMED South Africa’s Break Time Buddies program trains unemployed young adults to lead fun, participatory fitness activities, such as this hula-hoop game at Paradise Bend Primary School’s Fun Day.

In the past five years, USAID programming has ended hunger for 1.7 million households and has provided access to safe, affordable and sustainable drinking water to 87% of the world’s population.

In South Africa and Jamaica, INMED has partnered with USAID to bring climate-smart agriculture and aquaponics to help smallholder farmers, people with disabilities and communities affected by climate change improve nutrition, food security and sustainable income generation.… Read the rest...
