One of our healthy and happy Class 5 students
21,140 meals, that is the number of meals we served the school term that just ended a two weeks ago.
The success of the feeding programme is as a result of differents people working together. You, the donor who selflessly gives, the mamnagement team that ensures the funds are used in the most efficient way, the Child Welfare officer who not only ensures the food is bought but monitors the number of meals served, the kitchen staff who are always among the first to arrive in school to prepare breakfast and of course the children who enjoy every meal served.
This term,however , we saw the power of community in school when the country faced an acute shortage of maize meal, a huge component of our meals. Our supplier couldn't be able to supply the amounts required as his stock was stretched to the limit as everyone sought his services. Maize meal is a staple in most of Kenyan households and the shortage affected everyone despite their socio economic class.
Despite the shortage, we had to provide meals for the children and so staff members joined together and sought out different suppliers and eventually, a member of the community and a friend of Turning Point became our supplier for the remainder of the term and ensured we had all the supplies we required even as the Nation's supply normalised later.
The power of community, within and without the school, is an important part of the programmes we run and as we grow as an organization we are continually challenged to harness our relationships more.
We hope that with every report, you continue to feel part of this growing community. We appreciate that you made the 21,140 meals possible.
