Since the last report, we have received donation of 113.91 dollars (USD) through GlobalGiving, equivalent to 7,272.40 meticais (MZN). With this contribution we will only buy salt (1 T). This quantity will enough for restocking in preparing for the new school year.

By buying food, we have guaranteed the permanence of more than 900 students at our boarding schools in the districts of Búzi, Chibabava and Machanga. Between November 2023 until the end of January, we sent food to the boarding schools once, because the students were on holidays between December and end of January. The new school year, started on the 1st of February. We sent 16.800kg of Maize - 453,600 MZN equivalent to 7,101.29 (USD); 2.400kg of Beans - 240,000 MZN equivalent to 3,756.95 USD, 680kg of Sugar - 58,822 MZN equivalent to 921.09 USD; 680L of Oil - 77,350 MZN equivalent to 1,205.50 USD, 500kg Salt (3. 500 MZN equivalent to 54.46 USD); and for transport of the products from Chimoio to Estaquinha and to the 4 missions 86,937.05 MZN were spent equivalent to 1,352.82 USD. The total of costs was of is 920,209.05 MZN equivalent to 14,329.12 USD. These amounts are enough to feed 911 students in 1 month, guaranteeing the 3 main meals per day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). It should be noted that quantities vary according to existing stock. 

 The number of students has reduced in 2023 because food costs have been exponentially increasing due to inflation. ESMABAMA makes a huge effort to guarantee meals for these students as it is the only way students from vulnerable backgrounds will be able to continue studying.
