A very generous partner has just offered to match all donations to our Noon Meal project. Imagine! Any donation you make now will automatically be doubled, enabling the College Modern de l'Amitie to ensure noon meals for their 350 students next school year.
The college (middle school) reports that in this second year of operation, 77% of students advanced to the next level (compared with 71% last year and less than half that number in public schools). 22% will repeat their previous year of studies. Excellent results in a very rigorous system! The long term goal is 90% advancement to the next level. The noonday meal has contributed greatly to the students' concentration.
Thanks to Global Giving's support, the middle school reports that for the first trimester of the school year '06-'07, 82% of students completed coursework successfully compared with 60% in the first trimester of '05-'06 when school lunches were not available. "What intellectual work can one ask of a child who is overcome by hunger?"
Project reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
