Summary

This project provides a nutritious lunch & education support to children identified by their teachers as being most in need, due to extreme poverty, malnutrition, abandonment by one or both parents, or learning disabilities. Help Bolivia would like your help in supporting the lunch and education support program so these kids can graduate and have increased employment opportunities and/or consider post-secondary education. Education is the way out of poverty!

Challenge

Before Help Bolivia the Bolivian children who attend the supplemental educational program were too hungry to focus on learning. The children have been identified to enter the program by the schools because they need additional support, some suffer from malnutrition, many are not at learning level, and all have difficult family environments. These are poor kids in a poor country and they need at least one reliable nutritious meal a day to survive and thrive.

Solution

This project from Help Bolivia will provide the infastructure, labour and supplies to provide a nutritious hot meal for the children 5 days a week. They will be able to count on a delicious fresh cooked meal. Food will provide them the ability to learn, grow, live. Food is a neccessity of life. These meals will also teach them about nutrition and eating in social settings.

Long-Term Impact

Regular food for the children will contribute to improved school performance, cognitive and creative development and personal and social development. Hungry children can not thrive. A daily hot meal can make the difference in being successful. These meals will allow them to focus on improving their education and other aspects of development.
