Build a Cafeteria to feed 150 children in Mexico

by Paper Houses across the Border, Inc.

Summary

We are building a cafeteria for a public kindergarten in Acuna, Coahuila, Mexico where 150 children between 4 and 6 years of age living in poverty will be fed. A cafeteria in good condition providing a nutritious diet is essential in schools because a poorly nourished child learns slowly and likewise healthy eating should start from the early years and is basic as they can mark the difference between a healthy life and the risk of suffering diseases in later years.

Challenge

A cafeteria in good condition providing a nutritious diet is essential in schools. Four teachers, in separate meetings, told us that the number one challenge they face is hunger. "The children are too hungry to concentrate". "Some children faint during class." This Cafeteria will provide a space where 150 children living in poverty will be fed and will improve their learning, knowledge and health.

Solution

This Cafeteria will provide a space where 150 children between 4 and 6 years of age living in poverty will be fed and will improve their learning, knowledge and health. Preventing them from being hungry and from fainting during class. We built a cafeteria, complete with stove, refrigerators, cooking utensils, pots, pans, tables chairs and everything needed to run a cafeteria and the state delivers the supplies to prepare the food and trained volunteer cooks.
