A lot of good things are said about Self-Help International’s (SHI)  Children’s Feeding Program. Emelia, a KG instructor at Bedaabour Basic School tells Self-Help the feeding program has increased school enrolment from 90 to 150 within a year.

According to Emelia, the children come to school early, the frequent requests to leave during lessons has reduced, and some of the children keep their pocket money.

The staff of SHI had a chat with four children who know how beneficial the feeding program is. Francis, 6; Patrick,
7; Constance, 6; and Vida, 5, are exceptionally grateful.

When asked, “What would you like to say to the people helping to give you breakfast?” They responded  with big smiles and said, ”We like the food and they should please continue.”

Thank you for your generosity and support. Your donations have helped to improve the lives of children at Bedaabour Basic School as well as in other Ghanaian communities.
