Research conducted through a VWB/VSF project in Laos indicates that the production and consumption of crickets can reduce malnutrition among low income people. The research effort was headed up by former VWB/VSF staff member Thomas Weigel who has recently published his findings in the Journal of Insects as Food and Feed.
VWB/VSF's young volunteers for 2018 have completed their orientation and have taken up their posts. This year volunters will be working in Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Vietnam.
