Summary

In rural India, majority of the girls don't get even ONE substantial meal in a day. BSP Education Society provides free education to about 900 village girls. Keeping the girls at school has reduced early child marriages from 30% to 2%. Currently we are able to feed only half the girls with 1 meal however our goal is for all to eat. Please help us build a large scale, equipped kitchen where a simple, nutritious meal will be prepared for all the girls in our school. Any contribution will help!

Challenge

From 52 students and 8 teachers in 1986 to almost 1000 students currently, you can expect the expenses to have multiplied. The girls come from families whose average incomes are under $2 a day. Most of these girls do not get even one proper meal at home and the goal is to feed these girls with at least one substantial nutritious meal at school. Given the expenses incurred and the current kitchen we are only able to feed half of the students. With your help would like to feed all the students.

Solution

We will use the funds to expand the existing kitchen and equip it with bigger pots and utensils, better and more efficient burners, storage racks and work tables. All of these improvements will allow us to make meals for all the 1000 girl students.

Long-Term Impact

Getting a substantial meal increases their desire to come to school and allows them to focus better during school hours. This reduces the number of early marriages (under 18) as the girls don't drop out of school until they graduate. Through various arrangements BSPES provides the girls with vocational training, or with jobs at call centers once they graduate from high school. They even extend support to study further if that is what the girls would like to do.
