Summary

The Losinoni School Lunch Program will provide the 600 students of the Northern Tanzania Losinoni Primary School with a nutritious meal every day.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The rural Maasai school in northern Tanzania, Losinoni Primary School has nearly 600 students, and most of them walk miles to and from school each day, with nothing more than an evening meal of "ugali" -- corn porridge. With no breakfast or school lunch, it's difficult to concentrate on their studies, and some decide to skip school entirely. The Losinoni School Lunch program will benefit the children of Losinoni Primary School, helping to increase attendance and improve participation.

How will this project solve this problem?

Amazingly enough $25 will feed the entire school for one day. Through the funds generated, we will be able to provide the students of Losinoni with nutritious lunches of "makande" -- corn and bean mash -- and porridge and ground nuts.

Potential Long Term Impact

The School Lunch Project is an on going project that requires continual funding. For one year it will cost $5000 to feed the entire school. This incentive will ultimately lead to better education and futures for the children of Losinoni.
