Summary

Our feeding programme provides children in our partner primary schools with a daily lunch. Without this meal these children would go through the school day without any food, severely impacting on both their well-being and their learning.

Challenge

Without this programme, children at our partner schools would be forced to learn on empty stomachs. The lack of a government funded feeding programme in schools in Kenya, the drought-prone nature of the region in which our partner schools are located and the impoverishment of the local community means that, on their own, our partner schools are unable to feed their pupils. "The lack of food is a setback to learning. Poverty levels means parents are unable to feed pupils properly." Headteacher

Solution

By providing a daily lunch to children in school we remove hunger as a barrier to learning. An active feeding programme also encourages pupils to attend school in the first place and then keeps them there throughout the day. It also improves their learning by allowing them to focus and concentrate without the worry of an empty stomach.

Long-Term Impact

Our school feeding programme provides both health and educational benefits to children by helping to keep minds and bodies fuelled for productive and successful learning. "The feeding programme has seen many children who were out of school resume their schooling." Headteacher
