Challenge

Over 1000 pupils attend class room lessons on empty stomach in rural schools in Mpigi district and this has directly led to poor performance and geared high school drop rates, children go to look for mangoes and other fruits the whole day thus missing lessons. This project will purchase maize flour for 05 poor schools

Solution

This project will reduce high drop rates resulting from hunger and will improve on performance as children will not attend school lessons on empty stomachs. Each child will be able to eat one cup of porridge to enable them be sober in class

Long-Term Impact

When children have meals, they grow up healthy and bright, when children complete education, they become agents of change in their community, there fire, investing in them is investing in their future and the future of the community they live in
