Collaboration is a key focus of The Mathile Institute. We are proud to work with government entities, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, businesses, and individuals worldwide. Productive collaboration enables us to greatly expand our reach and impact while advancing our vision to enhance the nutritional health of the world’s children.
The Institute works with collaborators to establish and support projects that are comprehensive and culturally, socially, and politically appropriate and sustainable. We can join forces with an organization to expand or sustain existing project, or to address an unmet need to effectively combat nutrition challenges in children under the age of five.
In addition to conducting research as a component of intervention activities, the Institute encourages broader research to explore areas with the potential to create new nutritional truths and improve future interventions. Current research priorities include essential fatty acid status in expectant and nursing mothers, zinc supplementation for young children, pre-pregnancy maternal supplements, and nutrition and early brain development.
Global fieldwork and intensive research are not the only ways to support the Institute and its activities. In the fight against world hunger, everyone has something to contribute, from simply becoming aware of the problem, to taking direct action by sharing one’s time, talent, and financial support.
