Fundación Vivir – Mother Blanket

11 March 2022 | Services

Tapping into local Andean traditions, NGO Fundación Vivir educates mothers in the Ecuadorian Andes about children’s growth to detect early signs of health issues like chronic malnutrition. They took inspiration from the sikinchi, a blanket that mothers use to carry their babies securely. The Mother Blanket features the OMS Healthy Growth chart directly sewn into the design, printed in local dialects for mothers to easily understand.
