Summary

This program assists volunteer Mothers to provide daily meals to their malnourished children in rural schools in Sulu Province, in the Philippines. With a majority Muslim population, Sulu remains at the bottom of the UN's Worldwide Human Development Index. Some 350,000 mostly Muslim children suffer malnutrition which severely affects their school performance. Government funding is lax. Communities perform best when self-reliant. AAI empowers Mothers to cook daily lunches at their local schools.

Challenge

Mothers who cook daily lunches at their local schools encourage their communities to find peaceful solutions and cooperation. School failure entraps communities in endless cycles of poverty and violence across Southeast Asia. Sulu Province, with a majority Muslim population, remains at the bottom of the UN's worldwide Human Development Index. Government funding is lax. Students perform best when they are healthy. AAI assists by providing the needed nutrition for their success.

Solution

This program supports mothers who volunteer daily to cook at underserved schools. This microproject will help nourish 200 children in four rural primary schools in Sulu, Philippines. Our "One School, One Family" program overcomes hunger by helping moms prepare and provide nutritious lunches. Mothers will receive food relief staples to assist school nurses in cooking and serving daily healthy lunches. We will also provide garden tools, seeds, and pipes for clean water washing and cooking.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term positive impact of this program empowers communities to work together through their local schools. Asia America Initiative serves as a catalyst for peace and development. Our interfaith Christian and Muslim networks facilitate transparent communication and dispel fear and myths that alienate communities who feel alone and abandoned. Starting in schools, positive interaction and equal treatment of various cultural groups by AAI facilitates mutual respect and inspiration.
