The children attending our education programmes look forward to their daily school meals. Usually, tea and mandazi (a form of local donut) for breakfast and rice with beans or githeri (a mix of boiled maize and beans) or ugali (dense porridge from maize flour) with some vegetables. As Turning Point turns 20 years in this month of March, we would like to feed the children a birthday meal that is special and unique from what they eat every day at home and in school.
Turning Point is turning 20 years of serving vulnerable children and their families in Kibera slum. We would like to celebrate this milestone with our beneficiaries. Special meals and events are luxuries in the slum. Many children hardly get to eat special meals or participate in happy events or parties.
The speacial birthday meal will boost the morale of the children, make them feel special and expose them to a party experience.
