Benefits of the lunch at school in Burkina

By Herve Millet | Founder

The lunch program has been one of the first project we have started 25 years ago in the primmary schools of Burkina Faso. 

At that time there was around 300 pupils concerned. Now there are more than 3.300 in this program.

One warm lunch definitly encourage the children (and their parents) to attend school. Young children of 6/7 years old come from a family environment to primary school which is an hostile environment. 

Teachers are generally very strict (sometime too strict). They have not be taught how to control a class which has over 50 pupils and they use the method which they have undergo during their own education. 

Also like eveywhere, there is a lot of bullying which does not encourage children to go to school.

Taking into account those, children will have a tendency to try to escape from school. Since some parents are not really following their children, the concequence is children abandonning school mainly for girls.

The lunch at school is really a motivator to go and stay at school. It is also giving the children additional food helping their development.

We are thankful that you are supporting this project. It might make the difference for a child to stay or abandon schooling.

Please communicate this project to your network.
