The Inani StartWell Foundation is a South African NPO working to raise awareness and measurably contribute towards eliminating child stunting. We aim to correct the “norm” that millions of vulnerable South African children, because of socio-economic circumstances, do not have access to food that is rich in 'growth nutrients' during their critical first 5-years of life.

The Inani StartWell Foundation forms partnerships with businesses and feeding schemes to deliver daily nutrient-dense meals to babies, toddlers and children growing up in poverty-stricken areas. Feeding schemes get discounted prices and businesses receive an 18A BEE Certificate to the value of their contributions.

Welcome to the
Inani StartWell Foundation

“We aim to increasingly play a crucial role in the food processing value chain serving underprivileged communities in South Africa. We are excited to partner with institutions focussing on early child development and feeding schemes supporting our country's babies and toddlers through their early growth stages.”
