Bringing safe water, vegetables, fruit, chicken and eggs through a self-sustaining farm at a school of 2100 students in a community of families devastated by AIDS and Leprosy.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Most of the 2100 students at Bright Hope School don't have breakfast, don't have lunch and might also have nothing for dinner. Some of the children walk to the local dump at lunch time to root around in the garbage for something to eat. Without proper nutrition, on a daily basis, the education they are receiving will be of little help. The children have lost one or both their parents to AIDS or Leprosy.
How will this project solve this problem?
With a daily lunch of fresh eggs, chicken and vegetables along with safe drinking water in their diet, the children will not be constantly suffering from hunger and with the pain of water borne illnesses.
Potential Long Term Impact
Better nutrition leads to a better education. A better education leads to more opportunities for the children of this community.
