Vitamin Angels (VA) is a US-based, international non-governmental organization whose mission is to help at-risk populations in need - specifically pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five - gain access to lifesaving and life changing vitamins and minerals. To fulfill this mission, we provide annual grants of vitamin A supplements, deworming medication and multivitamins to NGOs that work with children 6-59 months old and/or pregnant and lactating women.
Vitamin Angels focuses on serving pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, and children under five who are at risk of malnutrition and do not have access to national health services. To support these populations we provide annual grants of vitamin A, albendazole, and prenatal/postnatal multivitamins to qualified local nonprofit organizations – our Field Partners – who want to supplement their existing community healthcare or nutrition services.
We also provide our Field Partners with technical assistance in the form of training and educational materials. Field Partners are required to provide bi-annual reporting at a minimum. Projects can be renewed annually by submitting a simple grant extension application.
Field Partners must meet the following criteria to receive a grant:
- Target “hard to reach” beneficiaries (pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five) who do not have regular access to micronutrient (vitamins and minerals) products from national health services.*
- Have existing programs that serve children under five and/or pregnant and breastfeeding women.
- Maintain a local presence and have an intimate understanding of the communities being served. Work with our team to tailor every project to the individual needs of each population.
- Work closely with our team to provide educational materials and training to ensure the distribution of our vitamins is done in accordance with proven methods and consistent with accepted best practices.
- Maintain responsibility for designing, financing, staffing and implementing the distribution of products granted.
