Emergency Food Situation in School

A microproject by Partners for Haitian Children
Vetted

Summary

This situation is an emergency. Our partner organization has been attacked directly, and this year the government stopped providing daily hot meals for the children-for most their only meal of the day. As the principal of the school stated, "now that this aid has ceased, the children are truly hungry and many suffer from abdominal pain or head ache." On an empty stomach, the children cannot concentrate and learn properly. We need YOUR HELP to provide the children with daily hot meals.

Challenge

The school's current inability to provide the 573 children in school (Pre-K to 6th Grade) with daily nutritional meals.

Solution

By providing daily hot meals to the school's children.

Long-Term Impact

The project will benefit 230 three to five year olds, most of whom live under extreme poverty, by building the foundation for lifelong learning, well being, and human capital development. A quality early childhood education program improves attention, effort, and initiative - all of which lead to better education. It is an excellent preventive measure to support the early breaking of the cycle of intergenerational poverty.
