Feed School Children in Kenya

by African Promise Vetted since 2010 Site Visit Verified

Summary

Our school lunch programme provides a daily lunch to 2,700 children across our seven partner primary schools in Kenya. 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

Hunger presents a serious obstacle to the improvement of pupil performance in our partner schools as it not only impacts on retention, access and drop-out rates but it also severely inhibits the learning of those pupils remaining in school, who are required to engage in learning on empty stomachs.

Solution

Our lunch programme provides a daily lunch to each and every pupil across our partner schools. This consists of either rice or maize, accompanied by beans. For many of these children, this is often their only guaranteed meal of the day.

Long-Term Impact

By providing a daily lunch to children in school we remove hunger as a barrier to learning. An active feeding programme encourages pupils to attend school in the first place and then keeps them there throughout the day. The programme also provides health and educational benefits to these vulnerable and impoverished children by helping to keep minds and bodies fuelled for productive and successful learning.
