Nearly 400,000 meals served in extended 2020 academic year

The longest and most disrupted of academic years in Kenya has finally concluded with us having supplied food for around 392,000 lunchtime meals at a total cost of some £33,000.

In total between January 2020 and July 2021 we delivered more than 62,000 kilograms of dried foodstuffs (maize, rice and beans) to our seven partner schools currently supported by this programme, together with 2,100 litres of cooking oil and nearly 750kg of salt.

There is no rest however and the delayed 2021 academic year has already commenced after a break of just one week, with food for the first half of the 10-week term already having been delivered, much to the delight of headteachers and school management boards:

“Lots of appreciations to African Promise for the continued support of the feeding programme in our school.”

With a scheduled 20 weeks of term-time between now and the end of the calendar year, and schools once again operating at normal capacity, there will be significant demand on our resources in order to maintain a supply of the food needed for a substantial and nutritious daily lunch for every pupil over that period – we have estimated the cost at around £19,000.

Thank you to those of you that have supported this programme recently or do so on an on-going basis. Your support is helping us to get children back in the classroom when the lack of a meal in school could instead be another reason for families to keep them at home as they battle against the wider economic effects of the Covid pandemic.
