This project provides nutritious lunch to pupils in rural Primary schools in Uganda, we are very concerned about children's health at home and at school,we are inspired to create projects that address very powerful issues that are affecting school children in Uganda.Our Goal is to raise $1000 by June 2017 to address this issue of hungry and starving children in rural schools. We commit to provide updates and reports on this powerful project and can't wait to give updates on real lives impacted
Pupils leave home hungry; they stay at school hungry, since the school does not provide meals, and only eat in the evening when they go back home. Many families cannot afford to pack for children lunch which is a requirement for the Universal Primary Education (UPE) schools. This has resulted into poor performance in schools in rural areas
Last year,Globalgiving donors provided 1000 kilograms of maize flour and 100 kilograms of sugar to enable pupils in 2 primary schools have porridge for lunch. This project will support 1 more primary school with 100 kilograms of maize flour each and 100 kilograms of sugar to enable children complete school hours
Our future plan is to introduce a Community School feeding program in which schools take a lead in producing food for children to eat while at school. Each class grows a different type of food and later the whole school feeds on the different types of food.
