Friends of Inharrime is a small group, but the donations that are received are used in a very targeted and high-impact manner. All of the money donated is used directly in projects that provide health and nutrition services for children in a poor community in Mozambique. The board members of the non-profit all volunteer their time so that the donations made do not go to administrative costs. The projects currently supported include a school lunch program for grade school children, a program to support infant nutrition and a project that provides extra nutrition, medical costs and education costs for kids.
