Continuing its partnership with the Foundation Benih Baik Indonesia, Darya-Varia organized the program titled "Great Mothers, Healthy Children" this year, recognizing the key role of mothers in shaping the golden generation. The program is specifically designed to ensure that every mother and community health cadre in Cibatok 2 Village have the knowledge and resources to nurture healthy and intelligent children, as well as to promote community self-sufficiency and environmental awareness for sustainable efforts to address stunting issues.


Initiated in 2018, collaboration between Darya-Varia and the Ministry of Health encompasses various aspects, including the enhancement of health promotion through Communication, Information, and Education (CIE), the Healthy Living Community Movement (GERMAS), stunting prevention, improvement of community nutrition, enhancement of maternal and child health services, prevention and control of diseases, as well as reproductive health education for adolescents.

The success of this program is evident not only in the nearly 60% reduction in stunting prevalence but also in the increased nutritional knowledge of the community and the strengthened empowerment of Cibatok 2 Village residents.

The positive impact of this program is not only reflected in numbers but also in tangible changes in the health and well-being of the community. The shared hope and commitment through the empowerment of mothers, community health cadres, and sustainable collaboration demonstrate that every small step brings Indonesia closer to a brighter future. This program is more than just news; it is an inspirational story reminding us of the crucial role that communities play in shaping the nation's future.
