School Feeding Program

$0.00 of $0.00 Raised
Lack of three square meals in a day for children among the marginalized communities has made it difficult for children to attend lessons on a daily basis since in most cases parents weigh the option of letting children go to school or attending to home chores that would ensure at least they get meals. On a number of occasions children as young as 10 have had to join their parents in doing menial jobs in a hand to mouth arrangement but at least with an assurance of a meal at the end of the day. Interventions that lead to the provisions of meals within a school program will increase attendance and concentration in school leading to improved transition to the next levels. Due to lack of funds to support all our activities, school feeding program will start in Year 3 and will target 50 pre-school pupils in their first year in school.
