Our Achievements

Our COGNITO micronutrient powder (COGNITO MNP), which has helped over 350,000 kids, is reliable and efficient. We have more than 6 million sachets (2,000 cartons), which we have sent to the states where COGNITO MNP is urgently required to solve the malnutrition issue that many Nigerian children are facing.

Youngsters who were unable to stand independently were able to stand and walk. Youngsters with delayed IQ impairments were nevertheless able to converse. This health issue and many others were conquered by children who had lost their appetite.

Many mothers have been grateful for introducing them to COGNITO micronutrient powder after sharing their testimony of how COGNITO has helped their children recover quickly.
