Challenge

A clean kitchen is an absolute MUST at a school where a high standard of food hygiene is so important for the health and welfare of hundreds of children. The Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center in Nakuru, Kenya is building a school, but we are also feeding 180 children 5 days a week and 480 children on Saturdays and during school breaks. We need a permanent kitchen construction as soon as possible to be able to correctly cater to so many children.

Solution

Hundreds of mouths are fed at the Live & Learn in Kenya Education Center every week. We have 180 children attending our school at the Center. They receive breakfast and a warm lunch every school day. Every Saturday and 5 days the week during school holidays all of the 480 Live and Learn in Kenya Int'l program children are provided with a warm lunch. We do our best under poor conditions to have the highest possible standard of food hygiene, but it isn't easy.

Long-Term Impact

The open-fire cooking possibilities that we have now - and the outdoor preparation of the meals is not safe enough for the children. It is our responsibilty to have the best possible standards of food hygiene to make sure that the children are receiving good, healthy and well-prepared meals. This can only be done in an indoor kitchen. The kitchen will also be equipped with a large and clean pantry where food can be stored. A good and nutritious meal is necessary for a growing, learning child.
