There are many factors which impact the school results of the pupils: availability of books, follow up of the parents, teachers availability.
Other factors are the distance between home and the school. If too far children do not go back home and they have to be the whole day without food. In addition for the girls there is also the difficulty at time of menstruation.
Children without a meal at lunch time cannot follow the lectures in the afternoon. It is particularly true with the high temperature in the class room. Children are falling asleep.
We estimate that the availability of a lunch at school can improve the success rate of the pupils at the final primmary school exam by at least 15%.
On eof the difficulty is that lunch has to be given each day at school and each school year. the costs of $US 30 per child / year is not too high, but when they are 3.750 mouths to feed, it needs a lot of fund!!!
Taking into account the bad harvest of last year, children will not have much food in the families. It is even more important now to have a meal at school.
