Summary

Malnutrition and poverty in Burundi has recently been made even worse by COVID-19. Food prices have doubled and travel restrictions have made it impossible to gather basic supplies. Children are falling asleep at school after the 4km walk having had nothing to eat for days. This project will feed 250 children every day for 6 months in addition to starting up a kitchen garden to enable them to become self-sustaining. Let's help our children now so they can feed future generations.

Challenge

Imagine having to choose between feeding your child or sending them to school? Or worse still, forcing your child out on the streets to beg. If schools could provide nutritious meals then the children can choose an education! Political turmoil has resulted in rising food prices and a deteriorating economy. More than 50% of Burundi's population is chronically hungry. One in twelve children die before their fifth birthday.

Solution

Let's start small where it counts. If we help child by child, school by school we can lay the foundations of a generation of well-fed, educated and self-sufficient children in Burundi. We can grow this garden seed by seed, tool by tool until it is fully self-sustaining. All donations will sow the seeds of long-term success, the more donations we can raise the larger the garden will grow! This vital project will provide fresh fruits and vegetables for the children, long term!

Long-Term Impact

Daily meals will provide the children with energy and enthusiasm to learn how to build and maintain a kitchen garden. After the first harvest nutrition levels will improve in the children of Murakaza School, along with fostering a sense of self-confidence and independence as the garden begins to develop. We expect to be able to feed nutritious meals to 250 school children at Murakaza after 3 month of harvest. The more we raise the more we can achieve!
