The Call to Feed the Hungry

Every child deserves an opportunity to access basic needs, among them is food. While this is the case, most children in Kibera Informal Settlement still survive on one meal a day or even go for a day or two without food. This has a ripple effect on children’s retention in school. As a remedy, The Turning Point Trust has been working to ensure that every child in our feeding program gets access to a hot breakfast and balanced diet lunch.

Out of these efforts, school records indicate that children are in school on regular basis, which is a great motivation. The goal is to see to it that the poverty cycle is mitigated among slum dwellers. Education has been a great contributor to this endeavour.

One of our beneficiaries Celine comes from a family of five. They live in a one-roomed coagulated iron sheet house, under the care of a single mother. The mother relies on doing laundry chores and freelancing in different salons. This has been an unreliable venture. As a result, she has been unable to meet the needs of her children. Through the feeding program, Celine has been able to report to school daily. She is now in class 8 awaiting to do her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE). She represents over 200 children who benefit from this program. 

Currently, Turning Point is in the process of taking up 20 more children into the program. The success of this noble cause has been through your generous support and prayers.
