As a single mom, I know how hard it can be to provide for my family. It’s a worry that a lot of us face, not just those of us who are going it alone. I also know, however, that we still have it a lot better than most, especially worldwide. There are hardships other children face that I couldn’t even imagine. That’s what’s so wonderful about the Truvia® brand’s “Sharing a Sweet Future” charitable initiative.
Did you know that every day, over 40% of Bolivian families struggle to support their children’s most basic food needs? Not only are 2/3’s of the Bolivian population below the poverty line and, as such, the majority of the country’s children do not receive the minimum daily caloric intake and are suffering from nutritional deficiencies, but even their cooking utensils are dangerous. The widespread use of primitive cook stoves resulting in harmful smoke exposure has led to a number of other health issues for families in the community.
Knowing the hardships faced by these families, the Truvia® brand is committed to working with the World Food Program USA to help provide Bolivian kids and families with a sweeter future. They’ve created a video series showcasing the hardships Bolivian families face everyday. All you need to do is share.

Sharing a Sweet Future
Thanks to the Truvia® brand “Sharing a Sweet Future” charitable initiative, over 34,705 Bolivian school children have already received more nutritionally-balanced school meals, and Bolivian locals have received 68 fuel efficient stoves, allowing another 3,574 students to eat cooked meals in a safer environment.
