School Meals for Indigenous Children in Guatemala

Apr 21, 2011

The need for nutrition continues

With 28 additional students now at the school we are committed to providing school meals for all. With fixed daily costs for this program donations through Global Giving are hugely beneficial to keeping this going.

The children at the school come from the poor and often neglected Indigenous communities and the meal at school will often be their only substantial meal of the day. This means the school meals are responsible for providing crucial nutrition to these growing children but they can also act as an incentive to attend school regularly bringing numerous benefits for the future. In addition, with a good meal at school the children are able to concentrate more fully and benefit from the lessons.

As we have seen over the years if a child is hungry they cannot learn so an investment in nutrition cannot be overstated.
