Challenge

During Mountains of Hope survey, it was realized that very few children took a meal before they came to school. This meant that pupils left home hungry; they stayed at school hungry, since the school did not provide meals, and only ate in the evening when they went back home. Many families cannot afford to pack for children lunch which is a requirement for the Universal Primary Education (UPE) schools.

Solution

We have provided over 3000 kilograms of maize flour to enable pupils have porridge for lunch. Our plan is to continue a School feeding programme 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.

Long-Term Impact

Mbute Primary school in Mpigi District is a pilot school, it has been proven to be a sustainable programme, we are now scaling it up to cover 5 other schools in Mpigi District.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a DOCX file (projdoc.docx).
