Collaborating Institutions and Foundations
Prisma ONG, nace en 1986, impulsada por un grupo de jóvenes profesionales multidisciplinarios para revertir los altos índices de desnutrición crónica infantil y los factores de riesgo asociados a ella en el Perú. El éxito de sus intervenciones permitió que se trabajen programas trascendentales como el Programa de Alimentación y Nutrición a Familias en Alto Riesgo (Panfar), que posicionó a Prisma como una de las ONG más importantes del país.
A partir de ello, y de las innovaciones realizadas en los primeros años, el campo de acción de Prisma ONG se fue ampliando y hoy diseñamos y ejecutamos proyectos y programas, estrategias, desarrollamos investigaciones, y brindamos asesoría en sietelíneas de acción: salud y saneamiento, educación, fortalecimiento institucional, producción y comercialización, investigación y desarrollo, gestión ambiental y logística.
