Review for Project Peanut Butter, Maplewood, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

PPB (Project Peanut Butter) does it right. PPB sets up sustainable programs in the countries they go into and develop the program from the ground up. PPB works with the farms and business to provide what they need locally. They set up a non for profit organisation within the country to run the program locally. PPB sets up a factory to provide RUTF (Ready to Use Therapeutic Food) for all the clinics that deal with SAM Disease (Severe Acute Malnutrition) already in the country. The goal is to provide RUTF for every clinic in the country and not need to import from outside. Then PPB starts setting up clinic in remote areas where the need is great and no clinics are available. These new clinic in the four countries PPB is in have pasted the 1,000.000 children saved. I have been a volunteer advocate, fundraiser and grant writer for PPB for ten years. I have written and managed in partnership with Rotary clubs in the countries of need, five Rotary Foundation Global Grants for Malawi, Ghana and Sierra Leone. We are working on another TRF Global Grant for Ivory Coast. Picture included is of me presenting a a Rotary District conference.

Rating: 5 stars  

Palm Springs Sunup Rotary Club from District 5330 has sponsored and written 3 Rotary International Foundation Global Grants for Project Peanut Butter in 3 African countries (Malawi, Sierra Leone and Ghana) with the assistance of 15 International Rotary Districts, Rotary clubs in each needy country and 40 clubs in our District. Project Peanut Butter is saving Children who are dying from Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM Disease). Project Peanut Butter works in cooperation with the Country's health services programs along with WHO (World Health Organization, WFP (World Food Program, UNICEF and USAid. Project Peanut Butter is dedicated to having Sustainable programs in each country to reach the children who are unreachable. The 3 Rotary International Global Grants have helped Project Peanut Butter save almost 200,000 children under the age of 5 per year. Sustainable means the everything is done in each country. A local NGO (Non profit Organization) is formed in each country and then increasing local Farms, developing a local factory, local distribution and local clinics all set up in each country. Project Peanut Butter hires local people and trains then till they run the program themselves. This is the way it should be done in all needy Countries where children are dying of Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM Disease). However it takes start up funding and WHO, WFP, UNICEF and USAid don't provide start up funding. When these programs are developed the WHO, WFP, UNICEF and/or USAid will help with the ongoing funding. Many countries are in need of this program to not only save their children, but to help develop their economy and self sufficiency. A small Rotary International Foundation Matching Grant was also written for The Philippines and a new Global Grant is now being written.
