MoBar, a CGI University Commitment to Action, is an organization that will provide financing for local women to make nutritional bars for the pregnant women in their communities. The bars will be made of almonds, dates, fennel, and corn cereal. These non-perishable ingredients contain the nutrients that are important during pregnancy such as folic acid, fat, iron, and protein. In villages, trust and acceptance are imperative to healthcare. In other words, women are more likely to buy and eat food from someone they have a personal relationship with. The goal is to empower these women to create self-sustaining community enterprises.
