Meal Programs Start at Partner Schools!
April 8, 2011
We are thrilled to announce that we have secured the food to establish meal programs at our partner schools! The food was donated by the World Food Programme and Stop Hunger Now and will be enough to assure the kids in our partner schools are able to receive one healthy meal each day for the next year.
Our local partners are especially excited about this because they regularly face the challenge of trying to provide a good education to hungry students. Studies show that hungry students struggle with shortened attention span, irritability, fatigue, difficulty with concentration and lowered cognitive performance.
Though we have yet to secure funding for food preparation, we give great thanks to WFP and SHN and everyone else who has helped to make this possible. The below picture is from IMN Community School, where each day 150 students now receive a healthy meal in addition to a great education!
