Stories from EBPP students on extra curricular Empower programme:

It’s more than 40%. Anda dapat membantu saya untuk mengubahnya menjadi 0%?”

Oleh: Wayan (girl), Senior High School Grade 3, 17 Old tahun, Pengalusan

CYMERA_20150918_090438This is the 6th meetings of EMpower class. Hari ini saya mendapat pelajaran tentang gizi buruk. Malnutrisi adalah kondisi yang tidak sehat (tipis atau pendek) that caused by nutrition deficiency like macronutrient (carbohydrate, protein, fat), micronutrient (vitamin and minerals) or both. Malnutrition has a big effect for human like stunting (short) and wasting (thin). This effect is very dangerous and could threat a human life, especially wasting, if we don’t help them immediately, it would become a serious problem.

My village is isolated which make us difficult to get anything especially food and also the people here doesn’t really know about malnutrition and its effect. It makes the stunting rate here is more than 40 %. It makes me so worried. In another situation I’m glad because the wasting rate is 0 % – none wasting. Saya berharap pengerdilan bisa sama seperti wasting.

Pada pelajaran ini saya juga belajar bagaimana memecahkan masalah malnutrisi. Guru mengatakan bahwa kita bisa memperbaiki stunting dan wasting jika kita memberi mereka makan dengan makanan yang sehat. Untuk wanita hamil, they ought to consume healthy food in order to feed their baby with enough nutrition so they born a healthy baby. I want to share this information to the people in my village hopefully they can change their eating habit so there will not be any problem about nutrition in the future.

After explaining about the material, the teacher showed a video about malnutrition to us. The video showed the same problem; stunting and wasting which happened in Ghana-Africa. It was surprising us. Almost the country in the world apparently has the same problem. The good news is the government all over the world makes an action called SUN Movement aimed to solve the problem; improve nutrition and earning potential of individuals and nation. This movement is involve 55 countries includes Indonesia. I was so glad hear that news. I hope all of the action they have created for tackling the malnutrition could be successes so the people all over the world especially in my village could grow up well becomes a healthy generation.
