Project Report | Mar 27, 2014
Hi from Fatima Jinnah School's Breakfast Program

Breakfast time has long been an attraction for the toddlers at SMB Fatima Jinnah Government Girls School. It not only gives them nourishing food but also an opportunity to socialize and organically learn to be disciplined by coming to breakfast rooms from their classes and lining up for breakfast.

Thanks to your generous donations, our students have become more regular at school, more attentive and more active physically and mentally. This is in contrast to the days before the daily breakfast program was introduced and complaints of children fainting in the morning assembly or remaining blunt and dull during school hours. The students are visibly more energetic and lively and their daily average attendance now stands at above 98%.

On an average day, the students drink milk with Horlicks (an energy booster), bread and butter, instant noodles, boiled eggs or potatoes, biscuits,etc. During the winter we added chicken corn soup, fruit salad and raw vegetables like carrots and peas which they ate very fondly. The students also report that they have managed to convince their parents to prepare breakfast for them on Sundays, when school is off - for most of them, breakfast was not a regular practice at home before this.

Eating breakfast is an essential part of healthy living and thanks to GlobalGiving, our students have learnt at school which they will hopefully carry forward to their families and communities in the future.
