Sitting Down to a Nutritious and Delicious Meal

By Debra aka Brique Zeiner | Chairwoman

Feeding Smiles
Feeding Smiles

Sitting down to a nutritious and delicious meal is a simple pleasure that many of us take for granted. Yet, for countless children, this remains a distant dream. At the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center in Nakuru, Kenya, we strive to transform this dream into reality. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, our "Feed a Smile" program ensures that no child goes hungry, filling their plates and hearts with nourishment and hope.

The Dining Hall Experience

The dining hall at the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center is more than just a place to eat; it is a sanctuary of warmth and encouragement. The bright and friendly walls are adorned with uplifting drawings and quotes, constantly reminding the children how loved and valued they are. Among these artworks is a magnificent original mural by the renowned French artist Patrick Moya, hanging proudly above the stage. This vibrant piece not only beautifies the space but also symbolizes the creativity and joy we aim to foster in our students.

Nutritious Meals Prepared with Love

Every day, the dedicated "mommas" in our school kitchen prepare hearty breakfasts and lunches for the children. These meals are more than just food; they are carefully crafted dishes that provide essential nutrients to support the children's growth and learning. From fresh vegetables to wholesome grains, every ingredient is selected to ensure a balanced diet that sustains their energy and health throughout the day.

A Moment of Gratitude

Before each meal, the children come together in a moment of gratitude, offering a prayer of thanks for the food and for the generous donors who make these meals possible. This ritual fosters a sense of community and appreciation, teaching the children to be mindful and thankful for the blessings they receive. The atmosphere in the dining hall is filled with joy and laughter as the children enjoy their meals, each bite a testament to the care and support they receive from people around the world.

The Impact of "Feed a Smile"

"Feed a Smile" is about more than just feeding hungry children; it's about restoring their dignity and giving them reasons to smile. For many of these children, the meals they receive at the education center might be the only substantial food they have for the day. The program not only addresses their immediate nutritional needs but also contributes to their overall well-being and academic performance. With full stomachs, the children are better able to concentrate, learn, and thrive.

The success of the "Feed a Smile" program at the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center is a testament to the power of compassion and community. Your generous contributions enable us to provide nutritious meals that bring joy and hope to these children's lives. Together, we are making a profound difference, one meal and one smile at a time.

Thank you, or as we say in Swahili, "Asante sana," for your unwavering support. With your help, we continue to nourish not just bodies, but spirits, ensuring that no child goes hungry and every child has a reason to SMILE.
