Nu Skin ® ’s Mission “ Our mission is to be a force for good throughout the world by empowering people to improve lives with rewarding business opportunities, innovative products and an enriching, uplifting culture.” The Nourish the Children ® (NTC) initiative unites Nu Skin ® with our extensive worldwide distributor force in nourishing the world's hungry children.
Saving Children with a Unique Concept In 2002, Nu Skin ® launched the NTC initiative as a way to help address the epidemic problem of world hunger. NTC is a humanitarian initiative of the for-profit company Nu Skin Enterprises and a co-venture with selected public charities. NTC itself is not a charity. Innovative concept: NTC sells a highly nutritious food – VitaMeal – and then donates all purchases to third-party non-profit organisations specialised in distributing food to those suffering from malnutrition and famine.
Recognised Around the World Recognition of Nu Skin ® ’s unique Nourish the Children ® initiative by the 2007 American Business Award for the: Best Corporate Social Responsibility Programme The American Business Awards or the Stevies, honour companies of all types and sizes and the people behind them. The Stevies also recognise outstanding performances in the workplace worldwide.
Why do We do it? Every 6 Seconds a child dies from malnutrition. That is 5,000,000 children every year. Nu Skin Enterprises offers distributors and customers a chance to make a real difference in the lives of suffering children.
Demonstrate the Difference With VitaMeal, you can break the Poverty Cycle and save millions of children from malnutrition.

VitaMeal - More Than Just A Meal VitaMeal was specially formulated for malnourished children by Pharmanex ® scientists and an expert in child malnutrition in third- world countries. It provides the ideal balance of calories, protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals that undernourished children need in order to grow and develop to their full potential. VitaMeal is distributed via reputable charities who have the necessary infrastructure to realise delivery efficiently.

How Does NTC Work? Contributors make a “virtual” purchase of VitaMeal via NTC. The VitaMeal is produced at factories in Malawi and China, using local produce and local labour. The VitaMeal is distributed by Feed the Children ® and other reputable aid organisations. Starving Children Live!
The NTC Difference NTC differs from aid organisations in the following ways: NTC is not a charity. It is a profitable humanitarian initiative run by a for-profit company, Nu Skin Enterprises. Contributors donate a food product, not money. The whole donation is delivered to the needy. We work with reputable aid organisations. Contributors are financially rewarded for their humanitarian donations. VitaMeal is produced in Malawi and China, fostering growth in the local economies. We provide detailed information, pictures, reports and videos from the projects in the different locations.
Of Malawi’s13,900,000 people, 2,000,000 are orphans. Life expectancy is 44 years 30% of children die before the age of five. Due to: Malnutrition AIDS 90% of the population lives in rural areas. Malawi – The Warm Heart of Africa
More Than Just Feeding…. Not just giving food, but helping Malawians to create a better future for themselves and their families via agricultural development programmes. Since 2004, NTC and the Malawi Project work together to provide long-term help via development projects partly funded by Nu Skin ®. Europe is focusing its efforts and resources on one destination: Malawi.
Malawi VitaMeal Manufacturing Plant Nu Skin ® provided half of the funds to build the VitaMeal Manufacturing Plant in Lilongwe, Malawi. The other half of the funds were given as a loan to Napoleon Dzombe, administrator of the plant. Pharmanex ® scientists adapted the formulation of VitaMeal to cater to the traditional Malawian diet and locally available produce. They also trained the people who work at the plant. The plant is owned by Malawians and offers continued value to the people of Malawi. The plant opened in 2004.
Malawian Working Partners Malawi Project It is a US-based charity, which works to provide food aid, health care, educational programmes and agricultural development programmes for the people of Malawi. Napoleon Dzombe He is a native Malawian who left his home as a young man with only US$3 in his pocket and an admonition from his father to help his people. He became a successful businessman and began providing food from his home to people in need. He is now working with the Malawi Project and taking care of the VitaMeal plant and supervising the distribution of VitaMeal bags to thousand of malnourished children.
Fabulous Results The VitaMeal plant produces over 2,400,000 meals per month, providing vital nourishment for Malawian orphans. Local production creates jobs for about 400 people. Local farmers have a market for their produce. Providing VitaMeal to schools attracts children to school who would otherwise have to work to help provide for their families. Local production means transportation costs are minimal, freeing up more funds for other aid efforts.
VitaMeal Distribution Distribution is done through orphanages, child centres, hospitals, schools… Direct village distribution In most cases, orphans stay with their family in villages Once a month, VitaMeal distribution is done with the help of local villages’ chiefs Every needy child receives a voucher that they exchange for one VitaMeal, giving them a warm meal each day for one month.
