Most of the children in the Tierra Linda school suffer from malnutrition. This makes success much more difficult. It also forces parents to consider removing, or not enrolling, the children into classes so that they can work and help provide for the family. Paso started a nutrition program to help solve these problems. Each student was provided with Incaparina, a locally produced nutritional drink, and atoll, a cereal grain drink 3 times a week. Paso also provides bags of food to each sponsored family at the valentine making session. Each student at the Tierra Linda school also receives deworming medication twice a year. Teachers have reported positive results from these new initiatives.
