Sadick and John want your help to win $1000 for their school!

By Nora Tobin | Executive Director, Self-Help International

A father's love
A father's love

Sadick loves the breakfast porridge he gets at school each day. In fact, he loves it so much, that he stopped eating breakfast at home, even on days when his parents were able to provide it. His dad, John, said that when Sadick wouldn't eat breakfast at home any more, he started to worry that his son was getting sick.

Then he found out the truth: that Sadick just liked the breakfast at school better than he liked the breakfast at home!  John is grateful that his son now gets breakfast every day of the school year, and says he is growing stronger every day now. John contributes maize from his farm to the school feeding program now for Sadick and all the children in the classroom to enjoy each morning. 

We know you believe in nourishing children like Sadick - after all, you've made generous contributions of your hard earned funds to support children like him in the past.  We need your help again, but this time we're not asking for money.

GlobalGiving selected this photo of Sadick and John as one of the top photos in their photo contest this year!  Your vote can help us win $1,000 to support this school feeding program:
