Better for You
Imagine what it’s like to grow up in a house without a toilet, or that the only real information you get during your pregnancy is from volunteer health workers who never really received any training.

Stunting might seem like an abstract concept, but let this photo paint you a bit of a picture of how stunting manifests itself physically. The twins on the left are 31 months old and are severely stunted, and the toddler on the right is their healthy, younger sibling that’s 7 months old. 30% of children in Indonesia faces what these twins are also facing. In South Sumatra, the number hovers around 25%.
