BTA Feeding Program Update for Spring 2013

The provision of the BTA feeding programmed in Ngolala, Mallory Jansen School has been very encouraging over the years. The founder aunty Sarah has been very instrumental and very devoted to see COTN children in Ngolala do not
come to school hungry. On the things that the students and Ngolala community people appreciates is that their children are been encouraged to attend school every day because they are having feeding programme.

The help of WFP for fifty days in the school to that of the BTA is carthering for over six hundred students, who are currently in our statistic. Every body in Ngolala and the COTN family are praying for aunty Sarah to continue her devoted services in helping those needy children in the Children of the Nation s Organisation.we ask for your great support and love shown to children’s in Sierra Leone.

Tommy  a thirteen year old boy in Ngolala community. He is
attending Mallory Jansen Memorial Primary school in class six.mhis
parent hails from Walihun village in Bumpeh chiefdom. According to
Tommy, they are six in a family to their parents. COTN being the only
good school in their area, Tommy was fortunate to attend school in
Ngolala because his father got a job in COTN.

Tommy is a happy boy in school, as he attends school every day. He
says one of the things that interest him most is the learning in COTN
School and daily meal that children feed on in school. His father went
on saying that as long as pupils get continued feeding of BTA, they
will not depend on their parents for lunch to bring to school. He
enjoys reading and doing mathematics as he would like to do medicine
when he grows older in life. Tommy is staying with his father at
Ngolala junction; where other opportunities for learning are available
to him. He wishes God’s blessing for those that are helping to provide
BTA food especially Aunty Sarah

A fourteen year old Mariama is attending Mallory Jansen
primary school in Molalla upper Banta chiefdom Moyamba District Sierra
Leone. His mother is a single parent with four children who are
attending school. Mariama’s father died during the war when she was a
small baby. According to her, COTN is a family Organization where children are transformed in a
holistic care. The admiring thing she enjoys is the way children are
cared for and feeding programme everyday in school. The feeding
programme in the COTN School is of great importance to many children
and the community. Children who get food in school, do not brother
their parent for lunch hence they cannot afford to give them food
at home in the morning.

She says lord blesses the providers for BTA which makes them healthy and
strong. She enjoys her reading class every morning in school. Mariama
would like to become a Nurse when she finished school to help her COTN
family brothers and sisters.

Veronica is a twelve year old girl in class five in Mallory
Jansen Memorial Primary School Ngolala. She lives with her parents who
do not know anything about learning. She says, she is very happy in
attending school in COTN Organization. Her father and mother are poor
farmers who bearly provide food for their daily meal. Vero’s as she is
called has passion for her student friends. When she asked, she says
God’s love is a union of transformation therefore she is blessed to be
in the COTN family of Sierra Leone. Being a God fearing child, she is
praying that she grow up to be a good girl to help her community. She
goes to church every Sunday and share God’s story with her friends.
One thing she feel about the school is, learning is very good as
compared to other school that has started in Ngolala, the students
enjoy a great deal of the feeding programme of BTA every day when they
are in school.
