Challenge

Children of ultra-poor families are severely disadvantaged for lack of basic needs in life comprising food, education support and hygiene kits. They almost always drop-out from school and lose the opportunity to improve themselves and brighten their future. When they drop-out, most often they also marry or get pregnant early and perpetuate the situation of poverty and hopelessness.

Solution

Supporting them with food supplement will improve their body conditions and make them able to tackle the rigors of school. Aside from food supplements we will also encourage their parents to grow vegetables in the backyard in order to get nutritious food and augment their income. Education supplies comprising bags, notebooks, pens and uniforms will improve their standing among their classmates. Hygiene kits also will improve their grooming and cleanliness.

Long-Term Impact

The project is aimed to improve the life chances of children of ultra-poor families by supporting their educational needs. The long-term impact is for them to be successful and return to their communities in order to help their neighbors.
