The feeding programme improves the health and wellbeing of children. Access, to what may be the only meals they receive in a day, incentivizes families to send their children to school. Children who are fed nutritious meals at school will be more able to engage with school activities and have greater prospects of reaching their full potential.
Since 2010. The school has grown from its humble beginnings as a care centre to a fully-fledged school. As the centre grew and developed, this project has helped to cater to its diverse and ever-changing needs. With 14.5 million individuals facing a food crisis, this project is a start to alleviating their struggles. Funds are used primarily to fund a feeding programme and to cover the school running costs. A donation of $15 will provide one children with breakfast and dinner for a month.
Please remember the little by little campaign in April where if you donate up to $50, GlobalGiving will match it at 50%.
We value your support in helping us feed the children each day and we also try ways to be innovative to help bring cash into the school so we can continue to operate. For about 8 years now we have 5 motorcycles that we own and rent out to the local community as it is the main way people get around in Kenya.
We have never had an issue and the income from this has helped hugely with our teachers salaries and stationery for the children. Sadly last week one of our bikes was in an accident and it turns out the local that rented the bike gave it to his brother who drove it drunk. It's our first incident in 8 years but we are learning and will be putting in policies to ensure this risk is minimised in the future but this month we are left in a tight position.
The motorbike has been taken by the police and with good old African corruption we are going to have to pay for it to be returned and fixed. The lady that was hit was an ex-students mother and luckly she has no long lasting injuries but does require medical attention and doesn't have healthcare so as a school we will take responsibility and fund her treatment.
With all these extra costs sadly we are going to end November in the negative which impacts us in December including the food bill so we kindly request if you can help us again to get through the last month of 2022 we would be super greatful
According to our world data 697 million people around the world are suffering from severe food insecurity! 22% of children under the age of 5 are suffering from stunted growth due to malnourishment. Assisting these communities has been our focus over the last 10 months. Since the beginning of the year we have managed to provide 470485 meals to individuals in communities suffering from food insecurity across 5 different countries. Our goal is to provide nourishment and food security to those who need it most.
In kenya, we provide meals to 120 children every day through our partner feeding program at a local school. This provides the children with their only cooked meal each day and provides them with the nutrition they need to concentrate during lessons.
We would love to continue to grow our initiatives in promoting food security and expand our footprint into other countries and communities!
