Situation

Hunger presents a serious obstacle to the improvement of pupil performance in our partner schools as it not only impacts on retention, access and drop-out rates but it also severely inhibits the learning of those pupils remaining in school, who are required to engage in learning on empty stomachs.

Solution

Our school feeding programme provides both health and educational benefits to the vulnerable, impoverished children in our partner schools. A healthy and well-fed child is a child more able to concentrate and learn but, as well as keeping minds and bodies fueled, our feeding programme also encourages children to attend school and keeps them there throughout the day.

  • The feeding programme has seen many children who were out of school resume schooling.
