“The children like the food very much!!!”

The DIY Soylent was obtained via a crowd funding campaign, conducted by Powderedfoods.com. Hundreds of dollars were donated by transhumanists and soylent enthusiasts.
Aleh Manchuliantsau, the the Byelorussian Founder & CEO of 100%Food, generously blended and packaged the nutritious ingredients of his company, pro bono. Brighter Brains Institute paid for the shipping via a “balikbayan box” company.
Powderedfood.com’s generosity enabled the health of these disadvantaged children, and demonstrated the world-changing potential of Soylent.
The Alangan Mangyan live in the foothills and jungles of Mindoro. The tribe is often malnourished, largely illiterate, with frequent parasitical worms, tuberculosis, diarrhea, and measles, due to lack of clean water and sewage systems. In The Philippines, the Alangan Mangyan are “the poorest of the poor” – earning an average of $30/month.
The “reservation school” that’s drinking the powdered food offers K-8 education. Family members dwell on the school grounds, elevating the population to 300. The Alangan Mangyan subsist on root crops, snails, rats, insects, fruit, and neighbor’s rice left over on stalks after harvests. To squelch hunger they chew betel nut, an addictive substance that stains teeth black and leads to oral cancer. Healthy food is deeply appreciated here!
The Alangan Mangyan children were recently “de-wormed” via medicine provided by the Brighter Brains Institute. Brighter Brains also sponsors 35 of the children at the school; it pays the teacher salary and provides a daily lunch.
