Plan Ironwoman in Ecuador

Plan Iron Woman (Plan Hierro) is a community development project that aims to provide
pregnant mothers with the essential nutrients, including iron, for the healthy development of their children.
Promoting pre-natal health through the production of iron rich vegetables and pulses
complements the Phoenix Project’s educational goals. According to the World Health
Organization, improvement in nutrition before birth and up to 3 years of age have the greatest impact on the child’s future growth and development.
