One child dies every… 6… seconds… because of reasons linked directly to malnutrition. That’s 5 million children every day and makes up between 1/3 and 1/2 of all childhood deaths in the world.
Even though Billion Dollars worth of enriched grain based cereals and relieve food is being sent to children all around the world, this stratedy isn’t working. Why?
Because there is a difference between Feeding children and Nourishing them.
Doctor’s without borders revealed this challenge to the world and called on industry to help find new solutions. This is when we found out what to do.
Mannatech had researched, developed and pattented the REAL FOOD TECHNOLOGY SOLUTION that could make the difference.
We had the answer!
Mannatech’s products are natural in a form that our body’s can easily utilize. Now we needed to find a way to get Mannatech products into the hands of the care takers and eventually into the bellies of the Children.
The act of creating, organizing and managing an income-earning venture to serve an explicit social purpose. The primary mission of a socially entrepreneurial organization is to create value that benefits the health and well-being of individuals, society, or the natural environment, rather than to create wealth for shareholders. Social entrepreneurs draw upon principles and best practices developed in both the traditional business and non-profit worlds. Venture philanthropists and social venture funds are often sources of financial support for social entrepreneurs.
Malnutrition certainly fits that category!
Real Food Technology Solutions offered a revolutionary new approach to addressing malnutrition
What stirs the hear of people more than the needs of children around the world.
The Network Marketing model of distribution could accomplish that better than any other business strategy.
Today we sent more than 1,460,000 servings of PhytoBlend powder to Nicaragua through our partners Convoy of Hope! This will help provide proper nutritional support to 5,600 children.
In Aug 2013 Mannatech officially launched the Mission 5 Million or M5M movement.
Mannatech annouched the official launch of its Mission 5 Million movement in Branson, Missouri. The Mission 5 Million movement, or M5M, represents the company’s commitment to linking five million consumers with five million children in need to help fight global malnutrition.
Leveraging the same technology used in creating their premium supplements based on Real Food Technology solutions, Mannatech created PhytoBlend™ powder, a potent product specifically designed to bolster the nutritional value of the food provided to children by relief organizations worldwide. Every time a Mannatech product is purchased on automatic order, a donation is made to M5M Foundation†, a non-profit organization, who distributes PhytoBlend powder to orphanages and relief organizations all over the world. This simple approach allows anyone to help nourish the world by nourishing themselves with Mannatech products.
In addition, Mannatech created the world’s first revenue-sharing rewards program for social entrepreneurship, allowing participants to earn income for championing the M5M movement by connecting consumers to Mannatech products. Combined with the company’s global infrastructure and patented product technologies, this revenue-sharing approach allows the company to actively incentivize those who champion the cause, aiming to shorten the timeline of reaching five million children in need.
†M5M Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization. It is not owned or operated by Mannatech, Incorporated.
