Challenge

In 3 schools in Andhra Pradesh, India, nearly 200 underprivileged children come to school hungry every day. Child malnutrition limits development and reduces a child's capacity to learn. With no food in their bellies, it's hard for children to concentrate on their studies. Some even drop out of school entirely. Instead of getting an education, children are often forced to beg or work for food. This project will provide healthy meals to 200 children, helping them to focus on their education.

Solution

Every day, poor school children will receive a nutritious lunch, providing them with the basic nutrients they need grow and preform well in their classes. The meal will include rice, dahl (lentil soup), eggs, vegetables, buttermilk, and sometimes fruit and cookies. The free lunches also encourage other children who are not in school to start going to school. It gives these children an incentive to learn and receive an education that will prepare them for a successful future.

Long-Term Impact

This project will feed 200 school children and provide a free education that will ultimately give them a brighter future. With an education, these children will be empowered to escape the cycle of poverty and pursue a better life.
