Nyaka Fights Hunger

Hunger is a global issue. According to the United Nations, 1 in every 9 people go to bed hungry. Your support for Nyaka ensures that the children who attend Nyaka schools are do not fall into this statistic. In 2006, Nyaka began a Nutrition Program to provide meals to keep students healthy and alert. Teachers had noticed that students were falling asleep in class and performing poorly. This was due from being sent to school on an empty stomach. Most of the children left their homes early in the morning without breakfast and in most cases did not get anything to eat when they got back home in the evening.

Now, Nyaka students are provided with nutritious meals. Proper nutrition is essential in order to concentrate and learn. Breakfast consists of porridge and a snack, and lunch can include beans, peas, groundnuts, meat, posho, vegetables, rice, matooke (green bananas), sweet potatoes, Irish potatoes, fresh milk, and eggs. Since the program began, the health of the children has improved. Malnutrition and stunting, which are common problems in the community (and Uganda in general), have been decreasing.

World Food Day is October 16th. It’s a day to promote awareness for those people who are suffering from hunger around the world. YOUR support has helped hundreds of children in Uganda fight hunger, thank you!
