Let's Serve Lunch for Children in Cambodia!

A microproject by JustWorld International Vetted since 2011 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified

Summary

Hungry children cannot learn. Why not? It's too hard to pay attention in class when you are falling asleep or your stomach is growling because you have not eaten. Their families afford basic foodstuffs and it is already an expense for them to go to school instead of working to make money to support their families. The lunches we serve at PIO is the only meal these children will likely receive that day. Since the program was implemented, students have grown up and become healthier.

Challenge

Childhood hunger and malnutrition in Phnom Penh, Cambodia through People Improvement Organization's Stung Mean Chey school. Each meal consists of a soup with rice, vegetables, and fish or meat, important nutrients for the children's health.

Solution

This project aims to serve lunch to children. For many, this is their only meal of the day. Not only does it ensure that they are well-fed, but that they are able to grow up healthy, learn, and lead more successful lives.

Long-Term Impact

This project helps to ensure that 35 students can learn in their classes, advance to the next level, and graduate on time. They will be well-prepared to pass their national exams, enter high school and university, and later obtain jobs that will help them to better support their families, creating a stronger, healthier community for all.
