Lauren Bush, co-founder and CEO of FEED Projects, UNICEF’s Next Generation Steering Committee member and proud supporter of UNICEF, traveled to Guatemala with UNICEF to see the programs her company FEED Projects helps support through the purchase of their FEED Guatemala bags.

“My experience visiting UNICEF-supported projects in Guatemala was moving and inspirational,” she said. “It was amazing to see the wonderful work that UNICEF does and the incredible impact Sprinkles [a micro-nutrient powder] programs can have in saving and improving children’s lives. It was great to see the FEED Guatemala bags come full circle – from the artisans making the bags in Guatemala to the actual children UNICEF is able to provide micronutrients to because of the donation that is generated through the purchase of the bags. It was truly an experience I will never forget!”
