In every group of 4 children, one takes a meal before they come to school. This means that 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.
Globalgiving donors last year donated towards provision of 2000 kilograms of maize flour and 100 kilograms of sugar to enable pupils in 2 primary schools have porridge for lunch. This project will support 2 more primary schools next year with 100 kilograms of maize flour each and 100 kilograms of sugar to enable children complete school hours
Globalgiving donors have created a Community School feeding program in one school 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.
