Mondelez International Foundation Hosts Global NGO Summit Promoting Healthy Lifestyles For Youth

DEERFIELD, Ill., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mondelez International Foundation recently brought together seven of the world's leading non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in community-based obesity prevention to accelerate their impact promoting healthy lifestyles for youth.  Together, they developed a common roadmap to help better measure, evaluate, communicate and design existing and future well-being projects.  Dr. Rafael Perez-Escamilla, Professor of Epidemiology and Director of the Office of Public Health Practice at the Yale School of Public Health, and Michael Alberg-Seberich, Managing Director at Beyond Philanthropy, led the summit with instrumental help from the International Nutrition Foundation.

"This is a pioneering opportunity to reshape how NGO partners create, refine and measure the impact of childhood anti-obesity programs," said Perez-Escamilla. "Using the concept of Program Impact Pathways (PIPs) we're teaching a cutting-edge, comprehensive and rigorous evaluation approach so NGOs and their partners can further improve their evidence-based programs." 

NGO partners included INMED Partnerships for Children in Brazil; China Youth Development Foundation; Klasse2000 in Germany, Save the Children in Italy; Charities Aid Federation in Russia; Alicia Foundation in Spain; and Life Education West Midlands in partnership with Services for Education in the United Kingdom.  The summit was the first occasion for NGO leaders to meet face-to-face alongside the 2013 International Congress of Nutrition in Granada, Spain – the world's largest gathering of nutrition professionals of its kind.

"It's unique for a corporate foundation to bring together a global group of NGOs, especially the on-the-ground experts, in such a forum," said Alberg-Seberich.  "And it's important to show the corporate philanthropy and NGO communities these workshops can make a collective impact on a global scale.  Together, they can find common denominators, better understand trends and opportunities and take a strategic view to encourage one another's success."
