Noon meal helps!

Thanks to Global Giving's support, the middle school reports that for the first trimester of the school year '06-'07, 82% of students completed coursework successfully compared with 60% in the first trimester of '05-'06 when school lunches were not available. "What intellectual work can one ask of a child who is overcome by hunger?"

2006 student achievement results

The College Modern de l’Amitie (CMA) reports the following results from their first year of operation: 71% of students qualified to go on to the next year of studies, 22% will repeat their first year, and 7% will be oriented toward other forms of training. These are excellent results for the CMA’s first year of operation. They represent twice the success rate of public middle schools in the region. It is anticipated that with the provision of school lunches next year, 90% of students will succeed in passing qualifying exams. Children need a minimum of nutrition in order to concentrate in school. The CMA is counting on your generous support so that it may provide school lunches next year.
