Challenge

Nutritious meals are crucial for children to grow up strong and be healthy adults. One of the challenges of supporting the 22 orphans in the Dream Home is providing nutritious meals every day.

Solution

This project will cover the costs of 4 months of nutritious meals for the children that reside in the Dream Home. Items being purchased are included in the five main food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods - meats, fish, etc., and dairy. This will provide the children with the nutrients they need.

Long-Term Impact

This project offers tremendous benefits in terms of being able to help deserving children grow and mature into healthy adults that will impact their communities and nation - and even the world.
