Reaching Children’s Potential (RCP) Program.
The
RCP Demonstration Program is rooted in Global Volunteers’ Essential
Services Prospectus published in 2011 (based on the UN’s Essential
Package), and a pilot project initiated in the impoverished fishing
village of Anse La Raye, St. Lucia in 2012.

Following Global
Volunteers pilot program in St. Lucia, we initiated the Iringa, Tanzania
RCP demonstration in 2017 in Ipalamwa village (Kilolo). In 2018, we
replicated the program in Lulindi and Mkalanga villages, and in 2019,
started in neighboring Ukwega and Makungu. We are now conducting RCP in
these five villages, with the goal to add five additional villages in
2021. Global Volunteers agreed to help address Tanzania’s significant
stunting problem by applying the lessons learned from the St. Lucia
pilot project.
