Thomas Malkinski, B.S.
Thomas Malkinski is a graduate of Montclair State University, College of Education and Human Services, in New Jersey, USA.

Thomas has assisted in developing the first and only "Diet and Nutrition Program - Uganda" focused solely on expectant mothers and their unborn children in remote villages in Uganda. 

Using some of the most recognized resources in the world, Thomas created a truly unique dietary model that reflects the Ugandan village culture.  Importantly, the program considers the access, or lack thereof, of various food staples.  

Certain foods contain vitamins and trace elements that are necessary for a successful pregnancy, and a healthy baby when born.  Unlike other countries, these requirements simply are not available to mothers and their unborn children.  This model helps fulfill the need.
