This programme will introduce a school feeding programme where by each class will be producing different types of food including beans, maize,bananas and sweet potatoes, at the end of the day pupils will have lunch rich in all types of body building food. The school will provide local resources like land while the pupils provide the labour during co-curricular activities at 4 pm whereas Mountains of Hope provides capacity building.

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.


We have provided 300 kilograms of maize flour to enable pupils have porridge for lunch. Our plan is to introduce a Community 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 will be a pilot school, once it works out, we will then scale up the programme to cover 20 other schools in Mpigi District.
